Anethum graveolens

Anethum graveolens

Common name dill
Family apiaceae
Life cycle annual
Flowers yellow (summer)
Size 3'
Light sun
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil
From seed self-seeds in our garden

Our need for dill as a culinary herb is limited, but we have a mighty supply every year: dill self-seeds prolifically all around our vegetable garden. We pull it where it's a nuisance, but leave it in out-of-the-way corners, to attract beneficial insects. It smells nice, too!

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

One or more images of this plant are included in my stock photo catalog
