Curled parsley has beautiful, dark green leaves well known as the classic garnish for deviled eggs and an ingredient in tabbouleh (parsley salad) or white clam sauce for pasta. However, it has many more uses. Hardy through zones 7 and warmer, it is a great winter garden plant and looks beautiful in containers with pansies or other winter color. It is also a favorite food of the black swallowtail caterpillar, so you can plant extra to attract these beautiful butterflies to your garden. The nutritious leaves are high in iron and in vitamins A, C, and E. The high chlorophyll content makes it a natural breath sweetener, too. Frost tolerant. Great in containers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great parsley: I got this parsley plant along with Italian one at a local Home Depot, and I never had to buy parsley from a store anymore! I planted them in at the end on May and I'm harvesting parsley every day for salads and soups. I would recommend these plants to everyone who likes home-grown herbs.
