Q.Identifying Wild Dill

Zone Trinity, Texas 75862 | Anonymous added on May 31, 2023 | Answered

Hi. I have several wild plants that are in my back yard growing in clusters in a very shady and damp area. They have tiny white flowers that resemble the poisonous hemlock, but the leaves do not resemble the hemlock leaves, so I’ve ruled that out, but at the same time, they plant and flower is very similar to anise, fennel, dill, and caraway…but I have searched many images online, and even used “Google lemse”, yet was unsuccessful in determining which wild herb it is specifically. It barely has any smell at all, and it did not emit any foul odors. The leaves are small and then (dill-like shaped) do have an idea of whom i could ask for a positive identification before foraging/harvesting this plant? Or do you have an idea or opinion of what it could be? Thank you in advance for your time. Eric
