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.  

Origins: Mediterranean and southwest Asia

Maintenance

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

Dill brings good luck to the kitchen, as well as for attracting butterflies.
