A favorite in wildflower bouquets, Queen Anne’s lace (Daucus carota) comes into bloom in the heat of late summer. This drought-tolerant member of the carrot family hails from Afghanistan and the surrounding region but has naturalized across Europe and the Americas. Queen Anne’s Lace is a favorite among pollinators such as bees, wasps, butterflies, and beetles making it a great addition to your garden. The position of Queen Anne’s Lace flowers is ideal for pollinators as it puts the nectar near the base of the plant where pollinators can easily gather it. It also makes a great landing pad for the larger butterflies. Speaking of butterflies, it is the host plant for the Black Swallowtail caterpillars! This plant is happy from garden beds to roadsides. Come to SGG and see how much Queen Ann’s Lace makes everything look like a bouquet! ... See MoreSee Less

I found one in our neighborhood one year and saved the seed. Now I have it in pots and in flower beds. The tiny pollinators love it.

Love these 💕

Coming to visit today! Can’t wait!

I love this plant! Never seen it for sale commercially. Wonder if it’s invasive in a garden.
