Wild Carrot Daucus carota is a typical member of the
Parsley Family with its finely-divided leaves and clusters
of small flowers in large umbrella-shaped heads. In the
Wild Carrot these heads are flat-topped and lacy
suggesting the plant's other name "Queen Anne's
Lace". There is often a single purple floweret in the
centre of the white head. As the flowers age the whole
head curls upwards like a bird's nest. The cultivated
carrot comes from this species.
