White laceflower (alias: bishop’s weed, binomial name: Ammi majus) growing at Minami Bousou peninsula, located in the south area of Chiba prefecture.
White laceflower is native to the Mediterranean. So, it originally likes warm atmosphere. But when it is too warm, stems grow up so fast that they eventually become weak.
On the other hand, in cold atmosphere, stems grow up slowly, and they become firm. Now is a good season to use White laceflower as a cut flower thanks to its firm stems. But excessive coldness could kill White laceflower, because it doesn’t have cold-tolerance.
Growers of White laceflower must pay a lot of attention to temperature control.
