General Information

AKA: Bird's Nest, Bishop's Lace

The name Queen Anne's Lace comes from a British monarch who was skilled at making lace and doilies. The dark flower in the middle is sed to be a drop of blood from Queen Anne pricking her finger.

This dark flower is more likely used to attract pollinators.

Related to Fennel, Coriander, Celery, Parsley etc. All roots can be eaten.
Related to Poison Hemlock.

When the flowers turn to seed, the umbrels turn inward creating a sort of bird's nest. Each flower turns into a spiney seed with hooked barbs.

Queen Anne's Lace is an important source of the natural food dye, carotene, and for this reason has commercial importance.
It is believed to be the origin of the cultivated carrot.

Seeds are edible and taste like lemons.

A teaspoon of crushed seeds has long been used as a form of natural birth control; its use for this purpose was first described by Hippocrates over 2,000 years ago.

The leaves can cause a reaction to sensitive skin.
