Also called Wild Carrot (Daucus carota). The name, Queen Anne's Lace, comes from its tiny flowers that grow in a 3 to 5 inch diameter, flat-topped cluster that resembles lace. The flowers are usually white, but may have a pale pink or greenish hue. The center flower in the cluster are sometimes dark purple.
The plants grow 3 to 5 feet tall and have an enlarged whitish taproot that is edible but acrid.
The carrot was brought to by colonists to the New World, where it escaped into the wild and became Queen Anne's Lace.
