Why don't you list Queen Anne's Lace ( Ammi maji) in your encyclopedia? I would love to grow this annual and you suggest it for butterfly gardens but when I went to check out what zone it was okay to grow in and other details, it was not listed in your encyclopedia. I keep getting No items found or something like that. How can that be?
Thanks for writing. Our Plant Encyclopedia is a work in progress; we add new plants to it every month. As to why it's not in the encyclopedia just yet is that we haven't gotten to it.
I'm sorry for your frustrations over that! But in the meantime, Ammi majus is an annual from Europe and the Middle East that produces flat custers of white flowers in summer. As you probably already know, it's a great cutflower and grows well in containers or in the ground. The plant grows best in full sun and moist, well-drained soil; it tolerates partial shade pretty well. It can grow 3 feet tall and 1 foot wide.
I hope this helps --- and I'll add Ammi majus to our list of plants to add soon!
