Sometimes called “wild carrot” this is the original plant our domesticated carrot was bred from and the entire plant- leaves, roots and flowers-are edible.  Used medicinally as a diuretic and for urinary tract issues.  Also well-known for its use as a contraceptive and the recently dried seeds are chewed or made into a tea for this- in Appalachia the flowers are traditionally used.  Prefers poor soil and full sun to part shade and is a common weed in the garden.  Biennial, flowering it is second year of growth. Readily self-seeds.  Hardy to Zone 4.
