Caterpillars of the Eastern Black Swallowtail butterfly eat the leaves, and predatory insects such as the Green Lacewing will eat aphids living on this plant.

Queen Anne's Lace can be identified by a tiny single red or purple flower in the middle of a flat cluster of hundreds of tiny white flowers. It should not be confused with the poisonous water hemlock.

The first colonists arriving in America brought carrot seeds with them but the plant soon escaped from gardens and reverted to the wild state that we know as Queen Anne's Lace. The wild root is rich in vitamin A which is good for vision.

Honey bees get nectar from this plant which produces a white honey.

Kids (and adults) like this plant when the stems are cut and placed in a container of water that has had food dye added to it...the flower itself turns same color as the food dye.
