Ammi (false Queen Anne’s lace)

Boy did this plant confuse me. It goes by so many names and there are several varieties–I can’t keep them all straight. Ammi is most often referred to as false Queen Anne’s lace, but can also go by bishop weed, false bishop’s weed, and laceflower to name a few. The most common types are Green Mist (Ammi visnaga), which has a misty, dill-like leaf and White dill (Ammi majus) (aka Queen of Africa) which has more of a carrot-like leaf, similar to Chocolate lace flower (Daucus carota), which is also referred to as Queen Anne’s lace or wild carrot. Whew! See what I mean! All of these make a great filler in mixed bouquets and will attract all the beneficial insects that you want to make your garden home.
