She supports large domed umbels of densely packed white flowers. In my experience they take a little longer to flower than Majus. Debate rages in the floricultural world as to which is the queen of them all. I reckon that they simply just have different qualities and I grow them both. They both equally add an architectural vibe to both the garden and to the vase.
A drug to treat asthma has been very successfully synthesised from Visnaga…well done boffins.
How to grow Ammi Visnaga.
Ammi Visnaga is a hardy annual (well really it’s a short lived perennial) and so can be sown in both Autumn and spring. Spring is really busy so it’s a great idea to get some of those jobs done and dusted in September.
You get hundreds of seeds in a pack so there’s no reason why you shouldn’t save some seeds until spring too and have a longer display.
Dig plenty of organic material into your beds before sowing and thin out to 45 cms…they can spread out quite a way.
Best of luck!
