Flowers of Wild Carrot

    Newer Older

    Daucus carota (common names include wild carrot, (UK) bird's nest, bishop's lace, and (US) Queen Anne's lace) is a flowering plant in the family Apiaceae, native to temperate regions of Europe, southwest Asia and northeast North America; domesticated carrots are cultivars of a subspecies, Daucus carota subsp. sativus.
    Daucus carota is a variable biennial plant, usually growing up to 1 m tall and flowering from June to August. The umbels are claret-coloured or pale pink before they open, then bright white and rounded when in full flower, measuring 3–7 cm wide with a festoon of bracts beneath; finally, as they turn to seed, they contract and become concave like a bird's nest. The dried umbels detach from the plant, becoming tumbleweeds.

    La Daucus carota o carota selvatica è una pianta appartenente al genere Daucus. Questa specie è comune in Italia. È la progenitrice delle carote coltivate. Le foglie basali e le radici hanno le stesse proprietà della carota coltivata. È considerata pianta infestante e si trova facilmente in estate in posti assolati ed in zone aride e sassose ma anche in tutti gli ambienti rurali e perfino alle periferie cittadine

      Clad in a lacey white dress of a million flowers the Fairy took flight into the blue open skies! Gorgeous shot!

      This flower reminds me of Queen Anns Lace with the gorgeous purple centre, Wild Parsley or the Giant Hogweed which silly me gathered the seeds one year and grew it in my garden unknowingly unaware that its sap is very harmful and toxic .
