    Sanicula odorata, commonly called the clustered blacksnakeroot,[1] is a flowering plant in the carrot family. It is native and widespread in eastern North America.[2] It grows in nutrient-rich woods, often in mesic forests and bottomlands. It is able to tolerate somewhat degraded habitats, and is not considered a particularly conservative species.[3]

    It flowers in the late spring and early summer.

    Identification

    Identification of this species from other Sanicula in eastern North America can be difficult. The following combination of features separate it: leaves are divided into 5 (usually) to 7 (occasionally) leaflets; styles are much longer than the calyx; there are up to 12-25 stamens per umbellet; flowers and anthers are yellowish-green, with petals much longer than sepals.[4][5]
