Queen Anne's Lace Queen of Africa
Queen Anne's Lace 'Queen of Africa'
This is one of the most useful and productive filler flowers you can grow from seed. The more you pick, the more they flower. I plant hundreds of them every year and use every single stem. The lacy flower heads and crisp green-white color provide an invaluable backbone for late spring and early summer bouquets.
*Please note: When cut, Queen Anne’s Lace emits a sap that is irritating to the skin and can cause scarring in extreme reactions. Use caution and wear gloves and long sleeves when harvesting. It is also potentially poisonous to livestock.*
Plant type: annual
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 90-110 days
Plant spacing: 12-18”
Pinch: not necessary
Approx seeds per packet: 100
How to Grow:
Start seed indoors in trays 6-8 weeks before last frost; transplant out while weather is still cool.
Pick when 80 percent of the flowers on a stem are open. If harvested much earlier, the stems have a tendency to wilt. Fresh flowers will last 6-8 days in the vase and flower preservative is recommended.
