About This Plant

Full sun to very light shade. Dill is a fragrant, short-lived, cool-season annual in South Texas (October to early April.) White flowers appear in umbels.

Use it in the kitchen for its delicate clean flavor; it’s normally added at the end of cooking.

Like other parsleys, dill is a larval host for swallowtail butterflies.

Maintenance

Appreciates some supplemental irrigation as the weather warms up. Plan on cutting back in early summer.
