Ground-elder as an introduction to the Apiaceae family

Illustration from Otto Wilhelm Thomé‘sFlora von Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz (1885) (Wikipedia)

Noticed recently that this post with one of the most menacing ‘weeds’ in this large family; the Apiaceae, got lost on my site so will have to do this again!

See here for other members in part 2. There is also a part 3, highlighting the medicinal uses more.

Ground-elder is mentioned by the RHS as a big menace in the garden and therefore an excellent reason for me to do this post!
