Ammi majus, commonly known as Bishop's flower or Bishop's weed, False Queen Anne's lace, Laceflower and Bullwort. Ammi is the less-invasive almost identical lookalike of true Queen Anne's lace, Daucus carota. The only notable difference being that Ammi has pure white blooms and doesn't feature the central red dot of "Queen Anne's blood" as seen in the middle of the Daucus umbel. Ammi is also not known as a noxious weed, unlike Daucus, which is a fair bit more unruly in growth habit.
A member of the apiaceae family, this lacy-umbelled plant is easy to grow, provides wonderful interest in the garden, and makes for a lovely cut display at both flowering and seeding stages, with a long vase life.
Wonderfully drought tolerant, reaching 1-2 metres in height, though can be limited in growth to 1m by cutting out the central lead stem. Ammi will happily self-sow in your garden for years to come.
Ammi majus is used in Indian cuisine as an aromatic spice, and traditionally employed as a herbal medicine for use in skin conditions and contraception.
Ammi is a fantastic friendly pollinator attractant!
