I have not grown this plant which is is native to much of Asia and most commonly cultivated in China. It has flat umbels of small white blooms and bipinnate leaves. It is used as a "sweat inducing" herb. When ingested, it may cause skin sensitivity to sunlight snd can cause dermatitis when handled. The seeds need sunlight to germinate so do not cover with soil. It is a perennial if you can keep it from setting seed.Only the root is used in herbal preparations.
