Perennial. Tiresome to grow from seeds and hardly worthwhile in view of its widespread availability as a potted plant. It is useful to have several clumps, as it should be cut back to the ground regularly to keep the new leaves growing. It is so easily found that many people content themselves with replacing the plants.
Its role is identical to that of chervil.
