Re-emerges robustly in mid-spring

Family apiaceae
Life cycle biennial

Mostly known as an herb used in traditional Chinese medicine. Sounds like it may also be quite garden-worthy for its ornamental features, which include attractively lobed leaves and umbels of white flowers.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
