Ridolfia segetum reviews
I'm not that delighted.
Reviewed 28th June 2015 by Clark Lawrence
It's true - the colour is good, and the flower heads are light and lovely, but I've seen several people touch this flower in my garden hoping to get a whiff of something interesting and Ha-ha! Nothing at all. Generous self-sowers, but any dill lover is bound to ask why anyone would want such a flower in the garden.

Tall and elegant, a see through plant with a really wonderful acid yellow colour. An unusual annual that gently seeds it self and fool everyone as they go to rub the leaf thinking it is fennel or dill. easy to get out if it is in the wrong place which is always an important consideration.
