More information:

Ammi majus, Apiaceae, Bishop's Weed, false Queen Anne's lace. Popularily grown annually from seed in UK gardens for its pretty white lace-like flower clusters. In Ancient Egypt its juice was used to treat the skin pigment disorder vitiligo. This practice continued into medieval times. The name used in its trade, Aatrillal, is still used today to refer to the yellowish-brown powder made from its seeds.
