Mystery Plant - Strange white flower with stranger seed heads

Here is a very strange plant. It has small white flower but the flower head is really bizarre.

  1. Wow first time to see this plant...where is this plant grown? Thanks for sharing all the lovely photos....Rosalina Sapolu

  2. I think it is Queen Anne's lace or something close, Daucus sp.

  3. Thank you ... Anonymous ... I looked it up and yes ... you are correct. All the photos I found resemble the plant I have seen here. The scientific name is Daucus carota ... but I will just do another post with all the other interesting information related to this plant. I would like to acknowledge you as having identified the plant but will be unable to do so unless you include your name.
    Thank you again.
