Comments: A clump-forming biennial used as a herb in cooking and to garnish dinner plates. Parsley can stand light freezes with temperatures down to 20 degrees F. It cannot survive the hot, summer temperatures of the southern USA. Variety neapolitanum, the Italian or flat-leaf parsley, has a slightly stronger flavor than this curly leaf type. Butterfly larvae feed on the foliage.
