June 28 — The Eryngo Family
An unfamiliar name encompasses familiar wildflowers: cow parsnip, sweet cicely, lovage. To this family also belong caraway, carrot, celery, coriander, dill; and just try to make chili taste right without cumin or Italian sausage without fennel! Conspicuous species are often memorized by general appearance without attention to distinctive family attributes, which makes identifying less conspicuous species more difficult than necessary.
