We are planting a school garden at our childrens' school. One of the parents has asked if Queen Anne's Lace will grow in our desert climate. This garden is in afternoon shade and will receive morning sun. Thank you for any information you can provide us.

I haven't personally grown Queen Anne's Lace in Phoenix, but I do grow Bishop's Weed (Ammi majus), which has a wonderful umbel-shaped, frothy white flower that is similar. It has a delicate green foliage and reaches about 2-3 feet tall. It's planted from seed in fall for spring bloom. It is sometimes slow to germinate, so mark where you plant it! It will take full sun and should be fine with some afternoon shade. A good reference book that contains planting calendars for the low desert is called "Desert Gardening for Beginners: How to Grow Vegetables, Flowers and Herbs in an Arid Climate." ISBN 0-9651987-2-3.
