Daucus carota, aka Queen Annes Lace is so invasive that it is prohibited to grow it in some states. What that tells you is that it grows so well that you'll be sorry you planted it. Each plant is capable of making thousands of seeds and germination rates are high. So check with your local authorities and think more than twice about planting it. It will invade your neighbors' gardens. Because of the carrot-like taproot, it can be hard to pull without using a deep trowel or shovel. It was popular in the 1950s before its aggressive nature was understood.
