A plant native to Europe, known since antiquity. A sacred herb for the Celts and commonly cultivated in monastic gardens in the Middle Ages, its bulbous variety is appreciated in cooking as a vegetable for its aromatic flavours. Its tall stems end in light yellow umbels that flower from July to September. Its fruits, harvested in autumn, yield an essential oil with a typical aniseed flavour.
