Lovage is a popular culinary herb that produces fine, dark green leaves that have an aroma and taste that is similar to celery. Its leaves can be used in salads, soups as well as added to poultry dishes. The Lovage’s roots and stems are also edible. The yellow flowers that this herb produces in June to July attract beneficial insects such as bees.
