Late & Spicy Cilantro

Availability: Out of stock

Our breeder has selected this exciting new herb for your sunny Salsa Gardens this year! The Late & Spicy Cilantro (Coriandrum sativum 'Late&Spicy') is a late-flowering, very leafy salad-type Cilantry with a wonderful spicy flavor! If you were lucky enough to receive the Cilantro-loving gene, you’ll love this lower to bolt, abundantly full herb!

The finely divided leaves and textured stems form lovely-looking plants! Plus if you’re lucky, you’ll see a few black, white and yellow striped caterpillars munching on your leaves. If you don’t mind them, you’ll later enjoy cocoons hatching into Black or Giant Swallowtail Butterflies! Just in case, plant a few extra plants for yourself and your wildlife! Bees and adult butterflies go crazy for the pollen and nectar resources!

You can pinch off the blooms or leave the big white umbels on the plant for your pollinators and butterflies! Otherwise, they are fine-textured additions to herbal bouquets and as garnish! Or better yet, let them go to seed and harvest your own Coriander, just be careful, Cilantro can self-seed readily, but that just means more for next year!

Planting and Application:

Forming tons of branching and lots of flavorful, powerfully aromatic foliage for your authentic flavored dishes, salsa and leafy salads! Even the flowers are edible and the seeds, also known as Coriander, can flavor your dishes, soups and meat dishes! Even the larger roots can be cooked, the entire plant has some medicinal properties!

Late & Spicy is an ornamental flowering herb with so much double duty in the kitchen as it does in the pollinator and perennial garden beds and borders! Those gardeners that find the flavor soapy and gross, can still enjoy these herbs for their flowering aspect! The lovely blooms add graceful, airy texture among cutting gardens, cottage border and sunny herb planters and patio pots.

  • Airy White Umbel Flowers
  • Tons of Flavorful Pungent Foliage
  • Edible & Medicinal Top to Bottom
  • Ornamental Flowering Herb
  • Butterfly Host Plant & Pollinator-Friendly

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Cilantro does require sunny, well-drained soils with moderate, yet consistent moisture to keep the plants fresh and usable! Pinch back to keep them bushy and productive, deadhead to prevent self-seeding.

  • Full Sun
  • Moderate Moisture
  • Annual Herb
  • Needs Well-Drained Soil
