Queen Anne’s Lace
You have posed a great question!
I just love it! A couple of weeks ago I found myself out on a dirt road digging up a couple dozen plants and then planted them on the borders of our property. 🙂
Wonder for sure, such a gift from nature.
I’m with you. 🙂
Wonder, definitely. Beautiful photo, Judy.
that’s not a weed…I have used it in too many bouquets for it to be a weed! 🙂
A true powderpuff wonder 🙂
While I don’t recall the details, I know people have made lovely Christmas ornaments with these. They are dried and look like snowflakes on a tree.
If I had a chance to transplant like you did, I would in a second!
I like Queen Anne’s Lace, so I’d say Wonder!
Not a weed, just another flower I don’t get to see anymore. It just doesn’t grow here but I sure remember it from Michigan. I can remember a a place down the street from us where it grew wild and I would pick huge bouquets of it. Enjoy it for me and thank you for the pretty picture!
I would not plant it in my garden, I suppose because it is an exotic and so aggressive.
I certainly understand and that’s why I planted it on the border to the wetlands. I can enjoy it from the window or the patio and don’t have to worry about it multiplying. It won’t grow in the shade of the wetlands and if it grows into the lawn the John Deere will take care of it. 🙂
Great picture! Queen Anne’;s Lace is a very special “weed”.
Do you know if this is a plant that could tolerate Texas heat?
I don’t know why not. It grows in circles and along the side of the roads in direct sun here with no watering process.
BOth, i think in the right places it can certainly look more like a flower than a weed. My field is FULL of them right now. I like them!
