Q.This Is A Plant In With My Parsley.

Zone 33773 | smgundel@yahoo.com added on October 30, 2020 | Answered

I did ask before but the Gardening Doctor(I think that’s who it was) said they couldn’t tell and to wait to see if it blooms. It never did bloom, just kept growing taller. So I cut it back to see what would happen. Here are the pictures. It looks like parsley but it was growing next to the parsley, so I know it’s not Curly Leaf Parsley. First picture is the tall stems. The other pictures are of different parts of the plant. Thanks.

That is not Parsley. Without flowers, it is hard to tell what that is, since it resembles many, many plants.

It could be Cosmos, Fennel, Artemesia, Dill, Ranunculus, and others, unfortunately.

Cutting the plant will set back the flowering process, which will help with identification of the plant. Unfortunately, smells are important as well. Each plant will have its own, unique, scent. This will aid in identification as well.

Your local extension service can be of some help, as they can identify samples that you take to them. This will allow them to smell and see fine details to get a better idea of what it is.
