Carum verticillatum
(Map updated: March 2008)
 

A relative of caraway (Carum carvi), but this species is an Irish native plant and has no culinary or herbal uses. It occurs in marshy ground in a few places in north Antrim and the northern part of Co. Londonderry. The leaves are finely divided with the segments arranged in whorls (rings) around the main leaf midrib.

All names: Carum verticillatum (L.) Koch
