I grew this from seed but forgot the name ☹️ Any ideas?
Wats this please
Found this on the internet, what plant is it?
A wildflower in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah
What is the ground cover? (Zone 6a)
Couple more in the garden. Any ideas?
I agree with the most likely candidate being Daucus carota, but I question the sensibility of the forager in this case. As with all foraging, you have to always weight the risk to reward. I don't think the flower greatly enhances this cocktail. It doesn't look great, it's not adding flavor, and if by some chance the forager got it wrong, it's a mistake that could put someone in a hospital.
Carrot family is one of those cases where you really want to be sure on the ID. And there is almost always a chance for error, or a chance that someone sees the properly IDed flower and decides they can do it on their own and they make the mistake, not the professional forager. Like, how do we know some bartender didn't just grab this from their back yard because it "looks right" to their untrained eyes?
Now, if it was an herb adding a special flavor to the cocktail, I can understand it. If it was a pretty flower that complements the drink, such as an orchid flower, I can understand it. This monstrosity of a cocktail is a joke. The flower doesn't suit the drink, it's big and gets in the way, and there is a chance someone can screw-up the ID with potentially fatal consequences. All-in-all, it reeks of stupidity which is the biggest red flag of all.
nah, looks like a carrot flower (Daucus carota, also known as queen anne's lace when wild)
Apiaceae is the family, I can't tell more. I'm usually pretty cautious about these since quite a few common members will injure or kill you if you touch or ingest them.
It looks like the barista just ran out, picked a flower, and stuck it in the drink.
