Bunium bulbocastrum - In summer produces lacy white flowers that resemble Queen Anne's Lace, and pretty foliage which would look attractive in the perennial border. The plant produces large clusters of small tubers that look like a small chestnut and have a nutty flavour some say akin to sweet potatoes when cooked. Height: 60cm. Hardy perennial that thrives in full sun to part shade. Very easy to grow and requires little care. Priced for a 1 litre pot
Use: Cook and use in the same way as you would potatoes. Both the seeds and leaves can be used for flavouring or as a garnish.
