Flower of the Week the Queen Anne’s Lace

Queen Anne’s Lace

Also known as wild carrot.

Lovingly used in bridal bouquets and arrangements.  This flower is named after Queen Anne of Great Brittan and her Grandmother Anne of Denmark.  It is thought that the red fleck in the center appeared when Queen Anne pricked her finger on a needle while making lace.  Today in the floral industry you will not typically see the red fleck.  This is more so seen in the wild variety.  You can easily alter the color by cutting the flowers stem and placing in a vase of water colored with food dye.  In the language of flowers Queen Anne’s Lace represents sanctuary.
