Queen Ann's lace grows freely and is nice in summer flower
arrengements. Be sure to place it in a long necked vase and add to the
water 25% glycerin by volume. It will keep your cuttings fresh a lot
longer than just water. Glycerin is a sugar alcohol and is available in
any drugstore. Glycerin is extensively used as a base for blue of
methylene, the only medication then available for sore throats in
tropical Brasil circa 1930-1940.
