Ammi Visnaga, Toothpick Weed, Visagna (White)


Beautiful fern-like foliage with an explosion greeny-white lacey flowers. Great as cut flowers & a wildlife haven.

Prefers a well-drained soil in a sunny position, succeeding in ordinary garden soil. Tolerates a pH in the range 6.8 to 8.3.

This species is not fully winter-hardy in the colder areas of Britain, though it should be possible to grow it as a spring-sown annual.

Seed - sow spring in situ.

This plant is sold as toothpicks in Egyptian markets. The fruiting pedicel is used as a toothpick whilst the seeds have been used as a tooth cleaner.

Leaves - raw. Chewed for their pleasant aromatic flavour. 

Note: Skin contact with the sap is said to cause photo-sensitivity and/or dermatitis in some people.
