Fern-leaved Desert Parsley Lomatium dissectum dissectum

This rare desert parsley is always associated with Garry oaks at the few sites it’s known from on South Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. On Salt Spring, one lone plant persists at a single site. The only similar plant and close relative carrot-leaved desert parsley (var. multifidum), occurs in the Okanagan and eastward. Flowering at the beginning of May.
