...have you considered Stone Parsley (Sison amomum) Helen...? I've been looking at Corn Parsley this very morning and your pic's do not look quite like it. Does your plant have a strong "nauseous" smell when crushed, if it does. it's Stone Parsley. The BSBI Handbook No.2, to Umbellifers by T.G. Tutin might help you.


Hi, Michael. Nice to hear from you and thank you for commenting. I seem to remember that when I was trying to ID this originally Stone Parsley was a definite contender. The thing is, I don't think this does have a nauseous smell. Not quite sure what that means, but it doesn't smell of vomit, which is how I interpret it. Or at least, not to me. How aromas are perceived does seem quite idiosyncratic.

On the Botanical Keys website they look very similar, but going by other photos, you may well be right. Does anyone else have any opinions?


Hi Helen. Saw some of this on my walk to work. Think it's Stone Parsley. Guess it's growing again in your garden again 2 years later now! I was too self conscious to grab some to sniff though!I've posted my poor mobile pic and my Twitter account @Walmerian . Best wishes Graham.
