What Is This Weed Please?
I always thought that this was Queen Anne's Lace... but is it? I was growing under my privet/hawthorn, facing northwards, and is approximately 12-15 inches tall. Hairy stems, dark fern-like leaves that grow in small clumps up the stem, and very few discolouration on the stems, pinkish umbels of flowers. It is the leaves that have a problem with - they do not look like the leaves of Queen Anne's Lace, Cow Parsley etc. I thought it might be upright hedge-parsley... but it was flowering already in June, so not sure there either. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks x
