Artist's Description

…..and some ant’s. :O] Summer 2011.
PLEASE VIEW LARGE
Fuji Finepix S200 EXR.

Plant : Erect biennial 40-100cm tall, from stout taproot- Like carrots, they can be eaten raw or cooked- The first year roots of wild plants smell and taste like garden carrots, but they are white and less crisp and more fragrant.

Leaves: 5-20 cm lomg, repeatedly pinnatley divided into slender leaflets. The young leaves and flower clusters are also edible raw or cooked.

Flowers: Tiny white to creamy (the centeral flower sometimes purple to reddish brown); many flowers grouped in lacy, umbrella-shaped, 4-12cm wide clusters with finely spreading, finely divided bracts at base.

Blooms: June to Sept.

Fruits: Bristly seed-like 3-4mm schizocarps. The seeds that are just mature make an aromatic spice for tea, yogurt and fruit salad. Older seeds however, have an unpleasent flavor- One plant can produce up to 40,000 barbed seeds, which are cupped in clusters resembling bird’s nests.

Habitat: Disturbed sites. This was found growing on the edge of my lawn near the woods in Norwood ontario Canada.

Distribution: Eurasia; naturalized across temperate Canada (except the prairies), south through the U.S.

Pick: Freely.
