Are you in Portland, Oregon, or Portland, Maine? Either way, the average temperatures in those places are 15 to 20 degrees lower than in my area. Cilantro doesn't last long during the spring and summer here.
Now, other herbs do great
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Genovese basil, Thai basil, oregano, curry, mint and bay laurel are all looking beautiful.
I have a volunteer fennel plant (the one used for seeds, not the bulb) that came up under the Japanese maple that is really reaching for the sun through the foliage. Dill is challenge for me, too, though.
