Orlaya grandiflora, commonly known as the white lace flower, is a fascinating and ornamental plant that belongs to the carrot family, Apiaceae.

Native to Mediterranean regions, including parts of Europe and North Africa, it thrives in open, sunny locations and is well-suited for rock gardens and borders due to its charming appearance and ease of care.

One of the most captivating aspects of the plant is its distinctive flower design.

The blooms are characterized by a delicate array of flat-topped clusters, known as umbels, which are composed of small, intricate white flowers.

‘White Lace’ is a compact grower and exuberant bloomer with masses of pure white flat-topped flowers above the ferny foliage, creating a sea of frothy white.

The more you cut, the more they bloom!

These are not only visually appealing but also attract a variety of pollinators, including bees and butterflies, making the plant an excellent choice for biodiversity gardens.

The central flowers of the umbel are typically more prominent, surrounded by smaller, lacy petals, giving the flower a lace-like appearance that is both aesthetic and functional, as it enhances the plant’s ability to capture the attention of passing pollinators.

Though an annual, they are easily grown from seed and will also reseed themselves.
