Orlaya grandiflora (White Lace Flower)

White Lace Flower, White Laceflower, Minoan Lace, French Meadow Parsley


Adding a delicate airiness to summer borders or fresh bouquets, Orlaya grandiflora (White Lace Flower) is a lovely hardy annual plant with abundant, large, flat-topped umbels, 3-5 in. wide (8-12 cm), of sparkling white flowers floating atop a lush, finely divided foliage. Resembling lace-cap hydrangeas with its small central florets elegantly surrounded by a ring of larger ones, it gracefully mingles with other plants, adding unmatched elegance. Blooming over an extremely long flowering period, from early summer until frost, Orlaya grandiflora enjoys a compact bushy habit, making it a great choice for small gardens.

  • Easy to grow, fairly pest-free and low maintenance, add this charming and graceful plant to the landscape and you will be rewarded with abundant happy butterflies, bees and pollinating insects!
  • Vigorously growing up to 24-30 in. high (60-75 cm) and spreading up to 12 in. (30 cm), White Lace Flower is an ideal addition to beds and borders, city gardens, cottage gardens and cutting gardens, as it makes excellent fresh cut flowers with a vase life up to 10 days.
  • Performs best in full sun or light shade, in rich, well-drained soils. Drought tolerant once established.
  • Deer resistant.
  • Grown from seeds in fall or spring. Sow seeds outdoors after all danger of frost has passed or indoors 6-8 weeks prior to the last spring frost date. Will freely self-seed under satisfying growing conditions.
