Lady’s Lace, Bisnaga
Ammi majus, A. visnaga
From the same family as Queen Anne's Lace, however these improved selections of Laceflower are much more attractive and useful. When mixed into perennial borders, or placed among taller annuals, Laceflowers are stunning.
GREEN MIST Laceflower Ammi visnaga
Free-blooming 2-4 foot plants produce large cloud-like clusters of pale green to white flowers. The feathery, fern-like foliage is a valuable "filler" for fresh cut arrangements.
GRACELAND Laceflower Ammi majus
Elegant large, flat, pure white flower heads carried on straight, strong stems, are superb for cutting. Blooms all summer long. Does not need staking when surrounded by other tall plants. Attracts beneficial insects. Foliage is dark green and fern-like. Grows to 3.5-4.5 feet tall.
How to Plant Laceflower Seeds
Sow seeds in cell packs or 2 inch pots, press into soil but do not cover. Light aids germination. Kept at 60-65° F., germination is in 14-25 days. Can direct sow (barely cover) after all danger of frost in groups of 3 seeds spaced 15-24 inches apart. Thin to the strongest plant.
