Queen Anne's Lace Seeds

*Fresh Seed in stock now!

Queen Anne's Lace originated in Europe and is now a prolific wildflower throughout the United States.

Queen Anne's Lace gets it's name because the flower resembles lace. The red flower at the center represents a blood droplet from when Queen Anne pricked herself with a needle while she was making lace.

Queen Anne's Lace was originally used extensively in old Victory Gardens.

This wildflower is a member of the Parsley family. Queen Anne's Lace is is also known as the Wild Carrot. It has a carrot-like root. Use caution in eating this flower because it closely resembles the Poison Hemlock. Hippocrates described the use of crushed Queen Anne's Lace seeds as a form of birth control over 2,000 years ago. Modern research has offered a degree of confirmation for this use.
