Conopodium pyrenaicum   Conopodium

Conopodium pyrenaicum whole Conopodium pyrenaicum leaf

The common name for the equivalent plant found in the British Isles is pignut which has an edible tuberous root like this Pyrenean species. There are brown veins on the underside of the petals in this species and most of the example we saw were much taller than the British Conopodium majus (Pignut).
