Expert Response

This appears to be a plant in the family Apiaceae, or the carrot family. It is difficult to narrow it down to the genus or species, but it looks similar to plants in the Ammi genus. Look at photos of false queen anne's lace and you may see the similarities. Plants in the genus Ammi are often sold as cut flower seeds under several names, including white dill.
