Fernleaf Biscuitroot  (Lamatium dissectum) 

Lomatium dissectum, commonly known as Fernleaf Biscuitroot or Wild Carrot, is a member of the Apiaceae family. It flowers in April through May with a large umbell of small yellow-white flowers, each becoming a flat, brownish seed that spreads by the wind. It is typically long-lived, and is fire and drought resistant, thanks to its large taproot.

The root has been a commonly used medicinal plant in Native American society, dating back centuries. It was used most frequently to aid in the healing of small wounds and to cure respiratory ailments. Historically, it was employed to combat the influenza outbreak of 1917, a practice still relatively common in alternative medicine practice today.
