SECTION: Flowers, Ammi, Laceflower, Bishopweed, Visnaga, Khella, Ammi visnaga
Delicate lacy flowers, long-lasting bouquets, medicinal herb, and beneficial insect attractor—this one has it all. Long grown in India for its powerful action against kidney stones, asthma, and heart problems, and in Spain to fight tooth decay, Ammi is now widely grown for its ethereal cloud of flowers. Gardeners have found it tough, easy to grow, and a long-lasting attractor of pest-fighting insects. Lacy leaves don’t get in the way of other crops, so it’s easy to set transplants among crops bothered by chewing insects. Late bloomer. Mix with alyssum and fennel for all season protection.
One packet will plant 30 sq ft when using 10" spacing in the bed.
