(Myrrhis odorata; Sweet Cicely, Sweet Cicely, Garden Myrrh, Sweet Chervil)

An umbelliferous herb related to chervil, with fern-like leaves, delicate white flowers and intensely sweet aniseed-like seed pods. The leaves are occasionally used in salads, mainly for their visual appeal, but are more commonly chopped and boiled along with tart fruits such as gooseberry or rhubarb, where they are said to sweeten the fruit.

See: Flower Salads
