LOVE this plant. It's so airy and see-through, it just goes anywhere. So delicately PRETTY!

Like golden alexanders and parsley, the leaves are eaten by black swallowtail caterpillars (also, farther south I assume, Ozark swallowtails). Flowers provide nectar and maybe pollen to small bees and flies. I got a plant from a friend, and I hope it will self-seed in my dry soil. My friend's plant was beautiful, with smooth glossy leaves and purple stems.
