Italian Parsley (Petroselinum neopolitanum)
Calling all BUTTERFLY gardeners! Parsley is the larval host plant for the eastern black swallowtail. From the yellow eggs to the caterpillar to the butterfly, observe all stages by growing parsley.
Italian parsley has a stronger flavor than curly parsley, which some cooks believe holds up better when cooked for flavoring and brightness in salads, soups, and sauces. Interplant parsley in the garden and containers to incorporate it into your backyard habitat.
Full-part sun. Height and spread 12-18″. Zones 3-9. Biennial.
