Nine-leaf Desert Parsley, April 18, 2013 - by Larry Halverson

Nine-leaf Desert Parsley is a common plant in SE British Columbia. It can be found growing on the dry open slopes around Radium Hot Springs. 

The early green up and flowering, often just following snow melt, provides crucial early forage for wildlife. It is also an important plant for early spring pollinators and is especially attractive to bees.
