Lovely, tall, airy, gaceful plant. Somehow appeared in random spots in several of our garden planters; most striking as a single plant amongst other contrasting leafy, deeper green, full plants.

Set out as a 4" pot in late fall and it's already 3' tall and is beginning to bloom. I put it in to serve as a larval host for the swallowtail butterfly.

This self-seeds for me. I love to brush against it; it smells so nice. Fresh dill, cucumber, onion, sour cream, and salt make a refreshing salad.
Dill should not be planted with tomatoes; they are enemies in the garden.
Blooms early June to early July in my garden.

Pretty annual herb, both seeds and leaves can be used for cooking. Dill is good with fish and in potato salad. Apparently it self-sows if it is not deadheaded, but mine went to seed without any volunteer seedlings appearing. It does not like to be transplanted. The flowers are beautiful and airy, and attract butterflies. Seeds are easy to collect, just shake out the dried flower heads.
