Coriander - Coriandrum sativum

Coriander (Coriandrum sativum), also known as cilantro, Chinese parsley or dhania, Coriander, or cilantro, is an annual plant whose leaves and seeds are used in many parts of the world. Coriander seeds are often used in Asian cooking, and the leaves are widely used in Latin American cuisine. Plant care differs depending on whether it is being grown for leaves or for seeds
Plant coriander seeds in a sunny spot, with some shade for the hottest afternoon sun if the plants will be harvested for their leaves, as intense heat can cause the plants to flower and go to seed more quickly. They grow best from seeds directly in the soil, as transplanting them can also cause them to flower quickly.

If the coriander leaves are to be harvested, the plants should be at least four-to-six-inches tall.
