If you take a good look at the tiny white blooms, held on umbrella-like stalks, it almost looks like Dutch lace. This is where the nickname ‘Dutch lace’ came from (in England ‘Queen Anne’s lace’). The white flowers form long white stripes along paths and meadows and make country lanes look pretty in the Dutch landscape from April to June . You can make whistles from the stems, which is where the Dutch name ‘Fluitenkruid’ comes from. A flower that is easy to dry and can be used in a wreath or as a decoration on a chair. They also look very beautiful in antique glass or just in coarse jars.
