Also known as White Lace Flower this little annual will happily self-sow and adds an airiness to summer gardens with its large flat umbels that can reach up to 12cm in width.
Orlaya is a great plant to attract butterflies, bees and other beneficial insects. Perfect for a cutting garden Orlaya' s elegant flowers can last up to ten days in a vase, just make sure when you cut it that you cut the stems on an angle so that they don't sit on the bottom of the vase but also have a bucket of water to the ready so as you cut them, you can immediately put them into water as this helps them to last longer. Also be sure to cut in the cool of the day rather than in the heat of the day which applies to all flowers that you are using for cutting.
