Lovage Plants

Levisticum officinalis

Lovage grew abundantly in the Liguria region of Italy and became an essential ingredient in Italian cooking. This plant is a vigorous grower that prefers a sunny location and moist soil.

An aromatic herb, Lovage has a celery-like odor and a carrot-like root structure. It grows easily as a hardy perennial and will last for years if kept under the correct conditions.

Most parts of this culinary herb can be used. The leaves have an excellent, warm flavor like a cross between celery and anise, and are delicious with most savory dishes (soups and stews) as well as poultry. The stems are harvested while still young to be used for flavoring primarily in confections. The Lovage stems can be cut in the spring - blanch and eat as a vegetable. Even the seeds can be harvested and used when ground, as a substitute for salt.

Once in bloom, Loveage also attracts many beneficial pollinators to your garden with its fragrant blooms!

Lovage Plant Uses: Lovage is a terrific culinary herb and has a light, savory flavor similar to a cross between celery and anise. The leaves, stems and seeds of this plant are all edible. Leaves can be added directly to stews and soups, while stems can be blanched like vegetables or cut to create hollow natural straws which are perfect for savory drinks like Bloody Marys. The seeds can be ground into a great natural salt substitute.

Tips: Lovage is a quick growing, vigorous plant so you may need to cut it back or harvest often to control its growth. Container planting will also help keep this eager plant in check, by controlling its spread.

Love it! June 18, 2019
Reviewer: Greg W. from Caldwell, KS United States  
All arrived in good condition.  They are thriving after two weeks in the garden with tons of new growth. A word to the wise... put a cage around them until they grow tall... the bunnies love lovage and will chew them up.
