Artist's Description

Seeds/ Daucus carota (Wild carrot)

Commonly seen in fields and along the roads in rural areas, this plant is known in the USA as Queen Anne’s Lace, named for the appearance of the flowers which at the height of their bloom resemble doilies.

The root, or “carrot” portion of the plant is edible while young, but quickly becomes too woody to consume. Extra caution should be used when collecting D. carota because it bears a close resemblance to poison hemlock. In addition, the leaves can cause severe irritation of the skin.

Domesticated carrots are cultivars of a subspecies, Daucus carota sativus.

This beneficial weed can be used as a companion plant to crops. Like most members of the umbellifer family, it attracts wasps. This species is also documented to boost tomato plant production when kept nearby, and it can provide a microclimate of cooler, moister air for lettuce, when intercropped.

They can call it a weed (and they do), but the countryside would lose a lot of beauty in its absence.
