Mock Bishop's Weed is a slender erect annual herb, part of the Celery family. It blooms spring, summer and fall with tiny white flowers in umbels. It is a host plant for Eastern Black Swallowtail. It grows 1.5-2' tall and wide and makes a great bedding plant.
Native habitat is wet to dry woods, margins of ponds and ditches throughout Florida and along the central coastal plain to Texas and Massachusetts
