Some Interesting Facts:
- D. carota is also known as wild carrot, bird's nest, bishop's lace.
- Like the cultivated carrot the D. carota root is edible while young, but it quickly becomes too woody to consume.
- Extra caution should be used when collecting D. carota because it bears a close resemblance to poison hemlock. In addition, the leaves of the wild carrot can cause phytophotodermatitis, also known as "Lime Disease" (not to be confused with Lyme Disease). It causes a chemical reaction which makes skin hypersensitive to ultraviolet light. So caution should also be used when handling the plant.
- Queen Anne's Lace has been used as a method of contraception and an abortifacient for centuries.
- If used as a dyestuff, the flowers give a creamy, off-white color.
- Queen Anne's Lace can be used as a companion plant to crops. It attracts wasps to its small flowers in its native land; however, where it has been introduced, it attracts only very few of such wasps. This species is also documented to boost tomato plant production when kept nearby, and it can provide a microclimate of cooler, moister air for lettuce, when intercropped with it
- D. carota, when freshly cut, will draw or change color depending on the color of the water in which it is held. This effect is only visible on the "head" or flower of the plant. Carnations also exhibit this effect. This occurrence is a popular science demonstration in primary grade school.
The Queen Anne's Lace is Seasons compatible and will change with the seasons. The seasonal changes only work if the Seasons EP is installed. It can also be used without Seasons, but only the summer state will appear.
