I've often wondered the history of this plant. Thanks for sharing all the great info. I never knew it was a wild carrot. I'll need to check it out in 'someone elses' field & dig it up to see. I don't disturb those around me. lol

I love, love, love this plant. It's romantic, feminine & simply beautiful! I was lucky enough to get a pink Queen Annes Lace at a church yard sale. Now I'm thinking about transplanting & collecting those I find for use in various places in the yard. I love the pictures you have, especially the pic of the one potted. Just beautiful! I'll use the links you provided to learn more. Thanks again Carrie.

Oh, no problem, the pleasure was all mine! And those are only a few of the links I had, too. Some of them tell you the best chemicals to use against this horrible noxious weed.

It can be a bit tricky to transplant, especially since being a biennial, it's supposed to be completely dead after the second year. So transplant a baby, or do it early in the year.

That's cut QAL in a vase, not growing in a pot, of course - I'm not quite that skilled!

Thank you for writing!
