The leaves of the Olive Herb plant actually taste like olives. The plant is bright green so it is a nice accent in the yard. You can chop the needle leaves and sprinkle them on a salad, use them in a marinade or in a cooked dish such as pasta.
It really grows well and is very low maintenance. The Olive Herb plant grows up to 1 1/2 feet.
While this plant is a perennial, I pulled it by mistake last year. I will have to see if it lasts through our upcoming winter.
I have not seen seeds for the Olive Herb so I usually buy it as a plant. This year I found it at Traxx Farm in Finleyville, PA.
