Italian Parsley is a European herb that comes from the Mediterranean.  It has be cultivated as a herb and vegetable for over 2,000 years.  Indeed, in ancient Greek legends, this plant sprang up where the blood of the Greek hero Archemorus was spilled when he was eaten by serpents. 

Part of the Carrot and Celery family, Italian Parsley grows to between 15 and 30cm.  This lush herb has broad, flat green leaves with serrated edges.  Try it in an apartment of patio pot, a Mediterranean, cottage or coastal garden setting.
