Daucus carota. This Carrot relative is the red form of the white roadside Queen Anne’s Lace we all love in midsummer. Its fine-textured foliage is topped with lacy, flat-topped blooms up to 5" wide that open white and transition to pink and eventually to a deep shade of plum-cabernet. The flowers are long-lasting in bouquets, while in the garden they blend gorgeously with their neighbors. Dara prefers full sun and moist, well-draining soil, though it is drought tolerant once established. Direct-sow after all danger of frost has passed, just barely covering the seeds with soil, or sow seeds indoors in individual pots 4-6 weeks earlier, hardening off the seedlings by slowly introducing them to the outdoors over the span of a week before carefully transplanting them out into the garden. Thin or transplant to 12" apart. Summer flowering. Height: 3' to 4'.
