Parsley Plants

Curled leaf Parsley.

(Petroselinum crispum)

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. It has many more uses in  salads, stews/soups, main dishes and as a garnish.

 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.

Pack. app. 50 seeds.
