Easy to grow perennial herb. Bright yellow flowers appear in cluster in the summer. the leaves are long and narrow with a distinct aniseed scent and flavour. Use sparingly in any recipe calling for French tarragon to which it is similar. It also makes a great herb vinegar for use in salad dressings.
