Traditionally treated as an annual, Bishop's Weed is a long time relative of the carrot are really quite showy in any garden.
Often mistakenly identified as Queen Anne's Lace (Daucus carota) they do share some of the same characteristics.
The dried seed is used extensively in India and some parts of China as a treatment for skin disorders such as psoriasis and vitiligo (acquired leukoderma).
We have never had the need to use Bishop's Weed 'the herb' medicinally and keep it for it's beautiful floral display. The root should be avoided though, as food or remedy.
