Discover the wonders of Daucus carota, also known as wild carrot, bird's nest or Queen Anne's lace. This herbaceous flowering plant is native to Europe and southwest Asia and has been naturalized to North America and Australia. Its cultivated carrots are known as Daucus carota subsp. sativus. Wild carrot has a range of uses including as a flavoring in stews, gourmet french fries made from its flower clusters, and its dried roasted roots used as a coffee substitute. It has also been used for centuries as a method of contraception and abortifacient. It's fascinating to note that when freshly cut, the wild carrot can change color depending on the color of the water it is in. However, caution should be used when collecting it as it has a close resemblance to poison hemlock and its leaves may cause phytophotodermatitis. This beneficial weed can also be used as a companion plant to boost tomato plant production and provide a microclimate of cooler, moister air for lettuce when intercropped with it. Add this biannual flower to your garden and experience the wonder of nature.
