Description
This species is common in the cut flower trade, and adds lacy white to meadow bloom. Ammi majus is the only Queen Anne's Lace species offered on our website, so if you buy from this page, that is the species you will receive.
*The "Roadside Queen Anne's Lace" is what many people call Daucus carota, the tall frothy-white wildflower so many know from roadsides. Called Wild Carrot in England, this European native is one of our most common flowering weeds in the US, and considered a pest in most areas. The seed is sometimes available in the market, but is often confused with common garden carrot, since the two seeds are almost identical in appearance. So in the past, some meadow gardeners have ended up with the bonus of not only the white flowers, but a crop of carrots as well! If you particularly love this flower, as many do, we recommend you plant the non-invasive annual species, and you'll find the flowers very similar.

Warning re. Ammi majus: Recently, it's been found that eating the seeds of this species can be injurious to livestock. So if you have grazing animals, keep this species away from them.
Number of seeds per pound: 867,000

        Comments about American Meadows Queen Anne's Lace Seeds (Ammi majus) - 1/4 LB:

        I used the Queen Anne's Lace as filler in cut garden flower
        bouquets. Also in large bouquets on it's own.
        It was just lovely....so delicate but sturdy too.

        Grew well in not so perfect gardening weather this year, so
        seems quite reliable.

          I tried half of the seeds in a number of places. When nothing came up anywhere, I tried planting the rest of the seeds. Still nothing.

            I planted the ammi majus last year along with my wildflower seed. They were beautiful and showy along with the other flowers.I planted them this year and look forward to June when they will peak.

                  These seeds did not germinate at all. I tried different areas of my garden and tried seeding at different times but have had zero success rate.

                    I have ordered these seeds several times and they are super. They always germinate quickly and grow well. They are excellent fillers in a cut bouquet and as an alternate for Baby's Breath. I have not had success with finding them elsewhere and so always come back here for more.

                    Service is excellent & quick
