Anethum graveolens, native to Asia minor and the mediterranean, commonly called dill, is an annual that is frequently grown in gardens not only for harvest of its aromatic leaves and seeds, but also for its attractive foliage and flowers. Dill typically grows to 10-30 cm tall on stiff hollow stems clad with aromatic, lacy, delicate, blue-green leaves. Leaves may be dried or frozen for later use when harvested fresh from the garden. Dill attracts a number of beneficial insects to the garden. Dill leaves add subtle but distinctive flavor to a variety of dishes including fish, vegetables, soups, salads, sauces, breads, and herb butters, vinegars, pickles, for flavouring root vegetables. Dill seeds can also be used for tea.
