Q.What Is This Herb? I Thought It Was Parsley But It’s Not.

Zone 33773 | smgundel@yahoo.com added on September 4, 2020 | Answered

It started growing in my herb planter. No idea where it came from. Probably a gift from the skies like my Canna Lily. It’s really pretty and grows lots and lots of stems. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There are quite a few plants that have this growth pattern. Unfortunately, the scent of the plant will be the best way to distinguish what it is. That, or waiting for some type of flower structure.

My top guesses would be, either, Cosmos bipinnatus or any of the Artemesias.
