Ammi visnaga Seeds

Ammi visnaga is one of our tallest hardy annuals with long sturdy stems, lacy white flower heads and dark green feathery foliage. It's a more robust version of Ammi majus with sturdier stems and more domed flower heads. Ammi is great for adding height to borders, for cut flower production and attracts pollinating insects too.
Ammi loves sun and dappled shade. Sow in spring for summer flowers then sow again in late summer or early autumn for larger stronger plants and more flowers early next year.
