July Mix

This composition includes two native wild flowers – Queen Anne’s Lace and Black Eyed Susans. The former are wild carrots.  As the story goes, Queen Anne was making lace (tatting). She pricked her finger and one drop of blood oozed out.  This became the central dark red or purple sterile floret that is present on some, but not all, Queen Anne’s Lace flowers. Black Eyed Susans (Rudebeckia) are a biennial member of the daisy family.
