Fabulous multi-purpose, hardy biennial. Grown primarily for pungent licorice-like seeds that appear in year two, highly valued as a culinary spice and medicinal. The entire plant is edible and also makes an excellent mineral accumulator, pollinator attractor, and companion plant. Delicate feathery foliage is pretty as a garden border. [No shipping to Colorado.]
Sow directly into the garden by early summer for seed production the next year. Likes average, well-drained garden soil in full sun. Grows to 1 ft in YR-1; 2 ft in YR-2.
