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