The entire plant is pungently aromatic, the fine, fern like foliage, beautiful, abundant white flowers, only to be followed by it's mildly narcotic seeds.
The Coriander greens can be used through most of the year, the seeds are great in pickles and curries, and the root can be used in bean dishes and soups.
