   This member of the Apiaceae family was described by Carl Linnaeus in 1753 (he must have had a busy year). It is found in most of Europe and has been introduced to North America. It grows in peat or well-drained soil with some water and some to a lots of sun. The tap-root will get three centimetres in diameter, the whole plant can reach for 2,5 meters. The flowers are white, and beside from seeds, it can be reproduced by dividing the roots, which forms off-shoots.
