Is this Queen Anne’s Lace?
We have a couple of these springing up in our front walkway area. Mark said he had cut them out before because he thought they were a weed, but let them go this year because….he just did.
Driving home from grocery shopping last night we noticed that the ditches were full of it. Iowa has a pretty extensive program to seed ditches and roadways with native wildflowers and plants, making us wonder about this. I had a slightly different idea in mind of what Queen Anne’s Lace looks like, but when I visit Wikipedia, my photo appears similar to what they picture. The Wikipedia entry is actually titled Wild Carrot and makes it sound like these are a weed, having been imported from other places.
Anyone care to comment?
