Adding a delicate airiness to borders or fresh bouquets, Ammi majus (Queen Anne's Lace) is an upright, hardy annual with large domed umbels, densely packed with pristine white flowers. Borne on tall, branched, slender stems, the lacy blossoms mingle gracefully with the other plants in the border. The finely divided, feathery foliage is attractive and acts as a light but effective filler, making this plant one of the best filler foliage plants. Blooming over a reasonably long period, from early summer until fall, Ammi majus remains lovely in the cold season thanks to its dried flower heads, which will be visited in the fall and winter by birds that feed on the seeds. Perfect for naturalistic planting schemes.
