A leaf celery that looks like curly parsley. Very ornamental; much stronger flavor than regular celery; used as a culinary and ornamental herb. This is an old Dutch heirloom that can grow to 3'. Very hardy.

What are the cons?
This is a great plant for gardeners with sandy soils. Typical celery has low tolerance for less than the best soil, while this plant is like parsley in its growth habit and soil tolerance, and yet has strong celery flavor. I am in z7 so I expect it to over-winter and self-sow in spring. Using the seeds for flavoring will be quite welcome.

I love this celery for soups and stews. It only takes 3 or 4 of the pencil sized stalks to flavor a whole pot. Very strong flavored if eaten raw. I will try drying some next summer for use over the winter.

We had a plant of this for 2 years, before it had to make room for other crops. It was great for using to get celery taste in the summer for soups and sandwich fixings. However when we tried to move it to a new location, we discovered it was a host plant for root knot nematodes. I will grow it again, but in a large container instead of in the garden beds. All in all a great option in weather too hot for celery.
