Quick Overview


Ammi Majus (Bishop's flower) has lacy, white flowers, like a more delicate form of cow parsley. This one is one of our long-standing best sellers.

Ammi Majus is the best white filler-foliage plant you can grow and spectacular arranged in a great cloud on its own. It forms larger, more prolific plants from an autumn sowing.

  • Easy for beginners
  • Perfect for bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects

Name: Ammi majus
Common name: Bishop's Flower, Bishop's weed
Type: Hardy Annual
Site: Full sun, well drained soil
Height: 90cm (3ft)
Spread: 50cm (20in)
For seed: Sow undercover February-March in a seed tray, module or guttering. Direct sow March-May and/or August-September.
Care tips: It needs plenty of water. For best results sow plants direct in autumn. It overwinters well for flowers by late spring. May need staking.
Flowers: ❀ June - August, 12 weeks from spring sowing, this is a cut-and-come-again variety
For the vase: Strip all the bottom leaves and some higher ones otherwise they will yellow before the flowers age. Cut stems to 30cm to cover an oasis globe hung from the ceiling. Cut short with sweet peas, nigella and poppies or use full length by itself in a stained glass vase.
