Carrie,

Plant cilantro in the fall. It will grow through the winter with nice parsley looking foliage. When the days begin to get longer in spring it "bolts" or sends up a bloom stalk and then the "feathery" foliage as you described it is produced.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
