a2z: The letter is ‘Q’ for Queen Anne

Queen Anne’s Lace

Queen Anne’s lace is one of my favorite wildflowers. 
Here are some things about this fancy plant that you might not have known.

It has a few more common names, wild carrot, bishop’s lace and bird’s nest.

If you cut it and put it in a glass of water and a few drops of food coloring the white color will change.

Lettuce likes to grow under Queen Anne’s Lace because it stays cooler.

If you’re brave enough you can eat the root when the plant is young, but be careful because this plant looks very much like POISON HEMLOCK!
