Chaerophyllum aureum   Golden Chervil DD I

Chaerophyllum aureum whole Chaerophyllum aureum flowere Chaerophyllum aureum fruit

This European introduction is a casual escape in most parts of the country but has been known at this site for over a century. At first glance it looks like a typical Cow Parsley type of umbelliferous plant but the long fruits and yellowish green foliage distinguish it from similar plants including the other common Chervil: Chaerophyllum temulum (Rough Chervil).

There are very few records for this escape: there are eight in England, five in Scotland, one in Wales and none in Ireland.
