Sometimes mistaken for Queen Anne's Lace, this lovely annual look-alike grows somewhat larger with neater, more delicate growth. Commercial producers of cut flowers appreciate these blooms for their long-lasting beauty both in fresh and dried arrangements. Bishop's Flower originates in the Mediterranean region, giving it an excellent resistance to heat and drought conditions. The seed, which tastes similar to thyme, makes a popular spice in Indian cuisine. Around 2000 BC, Egyptian herbalists began using this plant to treat skin diseases such as leukoderma, vitiligo, and psoriasis; the seed was prescribed for heart conditions.
