A Few Native Apiaceae

By Pattyhankins @PattyHankins

Members of  Apiaceae or carrot family are often easily recognized by their umbrella-like structure. When you look at the flowers from underneath – you can see how the inflorescence supporting the blossoms look like the staves of an umbrella. Here on the east coast of the US – Queen Anne’s Lace is the most commonly seen member of this family.

I realized I’ve photographed three other native members of this family in addition to Queen Anne’s Lace – and have never shared the photos. So here they are.
