Ammi majus is commonly called bishop’s weed, or laceflower and is a member of the carrot family Apiaceae. The plant has white lace-like flower clusters and works well among a range of plants in a mixed herbaceous border. Ammi Majus is great for attracting butterflies, hover flies and other beneficial insects into your garden. Leaving the flowers at the end of the season provides seeds for the birds. Finches love them too.
