Description

This species is common in the cut flower trade, and adds lacy white to meadow bloom. Ammi majus is the only Queen Anne's Lace species offered on our website, so if you buy from this page, that is the species you will receive.
*The "Roadside Queen Anne's Lace" is what many people call Daucus carota, the tall frothy-white wildflower so many know from roadsides. Called Wild Carrot in England, this European native is one of our most common flowering weeds in the US, and considered a pest in most areas. The seed is sometimes available in the market, but is often confused with common garden carrot, since the two seeds are almost identical in appearance. So in the past, some meadow gardeners have ended up with the bonus of not only the white flowers, but a crop of carrots as well! If you particularly love this flower, as many do, we recommend you plant the non-invasive annual species, and you'll find the flowers very similar.

Warning re. Ammi majus: Recently, it's been found that eating the seeds of this species can be injurious to livestock. So if you have grazing animals, keep this species away from them.
