This is a hardy plant that will seed every other year, and can be planted and harvested Spring through Autumn with a little straw for a blanket in the colder weather. I use this in many soups, a small bit in salads, and with potatoes.

Grew this indoors in a sunny window, plants didn't grow large, but it is prolific and grows right back after each trim.

I sprinkled this throughout my vegetable garden bed this spring and forgot about it. Now it's July in my zone 8/9 deep Southern garden and this parsley has not bolted yet. It has formed colonies of wide leafed foliage that I can cut anytime I need some for my kitchen. The bonus has been that it is like a living mulch for my vegetables. Oh, and the insects have shown no interest...and it smells nice when I brush by. Chalking this one up to a win for the year.
