Description: This common umbrella-shaped flower has large heart-shaped basal leaves. Along the stem, short stalked leaflets grow in groups of three. The yellow flower head is typically umbrella-shaped with a large number of tiny yellow flowers. Near the top of the plant, the stem branches into many regularly spaced short stems, each of which branches again in a similar fashion. At the end of this final branch, a tiny yellow flower is born. The visible result appears like small umbrellas.
