    Sub-group Carrot Family - Umbelliferae
    Description

    The carrot family are also known as umbelliferae as their flower heads form umbrellas. There are many members that are quite similar in appearance and can present identification difficulties so habitat becomes important. Whilst many are white some are yellow but all are popular with small insects as a nectar source.
