Jefferson sowed seeds of "Nutmeg Plant" in a Monticello oval bed in 1810. This hardy annual has been traditionally grown for the aromatic seed, black cumin, which is sprinkled on cakes and bread. Also called Fennel Flower, this species was listed by Bernard McMahon in his 1804 seedlist.

Nutmeg Plant is highly ornamental with its feathery, finely cut leaves and delicate white flowers. Sow seeds one-quarter inch deep in a sunny or partially-shaded site in early spring for blooms during summer.

Approximately 70-90 seeds per pack.

Line Drawing from New Britton and Brown Illustrated Flora by H. A. Gleason (1958).
