Sweet cicely looks like a lace curtain, is edible AND grows in shade! Likes moist soil and cool temperatures. From the roots to the seeds – all parts are edible. The flowers are white and look like lace. Delightful anise flavour with mild sweetness. This plant could be confused with the deadly poison hemlock!
