Flower of the Day: Clustered Snakeroot

Sanicula gregaria;  Apiaceae (carrot family)

Today I’m taking a break from blue and purple flowers to look at a greenish-yellow flower.  Like spring beauty, this plant is ubiquitous in season.  And as with spring beauty, that doesn’t diminish its appeal for me at all.  It stands about 2-3 feet tall, with umbels surmounting palmately compound leaves.
