Lovage has forest green leaves with bright yellow flowers.

Stems and roots can be used as well. The flavor bright and fresh. Much easier to grow than celery. Best used fresh, can be dried or frozen. Place leaves in icecube trays and add water. These cubes can then be added to soups in the winter to add that celery flavor.
