Ammi is an annual flower and her small, lace-like flowers also give her the name Queen Anne's Lace. Ammi belongs to the same plant family as Carrot, Parsley and Celery, all of which have the characteristic umbellate shape with a central flower stem that breaks into smaller stems and is then crowned at the top with many small flowers. The flower heads when dry close up and this makes for a really interesting stem structure.
