Queen Anne's Lace
Origin & History
Also known as "bird's nest, and "wild carrot," Queen Anne's Lace is named for St. Anne, patron saint of lacemakers in England.
Sentiment & Symbolism
Like lace, every bloom has a different pattern. The root of Queen Anne's Lace stimulates pigment production; North African natives chewed it to protect themselves from the sun.
