Genus of flowering plants / From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cenolophium is a genus of flowering plants in the carrot family Apiaceae (Umbelliferae). Its only species is Cenolophium denudatum (known as Baltic parsley), native to Europe and Asia. A herbaceous perennial, it grows to 1.5 m (4.9 ft) tall by 0.5 m (1.6 ft) wide, with dark green divided leaves and, in summer, many umbels of tiny pale green or white flowers on branching naked stems (hence the Latin specific name denudatum).[1] The stems are sometimes purple in colour. The flowers are attractive to numerous insects.[2]
