Is this Queen's Anne's Lace or not??

BeBe52-23August 20, 2013

I thought this was Queen's Anne's Lace but someone said it's not. An Online search doesn't seem to help at all. I just get more confused! Don't know if it's Queen Anne's Lace, Cow Parship, or Hemlock or what!? :(

Help Please!!

Thank You!!

Will try posting a few more pictures. Sorry I can't add a scale or don't know how to add a scale. :(

Here's yet another picture. This one was taken in a different location but nearby.

Daucus carota/Queen Anne's Lace has my vote.

Would be more assured if I could see some lacy carrot-like foliage. It may be near the base and somewhat dried. The hemlock and the parsnip have coarser foliage. All three plants are not hard to tell apart.

Hard to tell. I don't see hairs on the stem or the red dot in center.

Might be Sium suave.

Compare your plant to Angelica sylvestris.

The way the flower shrinks up looks like D carota to me. But I don't know Sium suave.

To add a sense of scale to a photograph just place something like a ruler or even your hand into the picture. For small items some people put in a coin or pencil, etc. You don't need to do anything fancy to the photo itself.

It is said that Poison Hemlock/Conium maculatum & Fool's Parsley/Aethusa cynapium smell 'bad' when rubbed between the fingers. Does your plant have any particular odor?

Thanks folks. I think I am just going to have to go back to the Nature Center and take some more pictures. Also if anyone is there, I will ask them if they know.
One thing I found out is that there should be a "purple" center if it's Queen's Anne's Lace. I did not see one. Also I don't remember it having any smell. I did not sniff it but it was not giving off any odor that I notice or remember.

Queen Anne's Lace usually has the one purple-red flower in the center, but not always.

Hi,

I went back to the nature center today and took some more pictures.

Here is one of them and also a link to the others I took.
I ask about the Queen Anne's Lace and as far as they know it is Queen Anne's Lace.
Thanks

The curled-up mature flower and the dark center flower are positive for QAL, and in your photo collection there is one picture showing the typical carrot-like leaves.

When a plant has a blossom look-alike that is poisonous, more identification clues are preferred. Thanks for your second trip.

I concur with QAL; that "nest" aspect of the spent bloom is the giveaway since we cannot see the foliage. It is not poisonous, so pull it up and smell the root; QAL is the exact same genus & species as your garden carrot and will smell just like it. You can eat it, but QAL roots are tough & stringy.
