Dill, Fernleaf anethum graveolens
Fernleaf Dill is a dwarf version of common Dill. Fernleaf is not as overpowering in the garden, and yet has all the flavor of its larger relative. The yellow blooms and seeds are used for pickling and the leaves are great in scrambled eggs, roasted potatoes, potato salad, or in creamy sauces.
As an ornamental plant, it gives an interesting texture to the garden. Slow to bolt.
