Anethum Graveolens

Dill (Anethum graveolens) is a perennial herb. It is the sole species of the genus Anethum, though classified by some botanists in a related genus as Peucedanum graveolens (L.) C.B.Clarke.

40-60 cm (16-24 in), with slender stems and alternate, finely divided, softly delicate leaves 10-20 cm (3.9-7.9 in) long. The ultimate leaf divisions are 1-2 mm (0.039-0.079 in) broad, slightly broader than the similar leaves of fennel, which are threadlike, less than 1 mm (0.039 in) broad, but harder in texture. The flowers are white to yellow, in small umbels 2-9 cm (0.79-3.5 in) diameter. The seeds are 4-5 mm (0.16-0.20 in) long and 1 mm (0.039 in) thick, and straight to slightly curved with a longitudinally ridged surface.
