Series: "Wild flowers of Crete"

Smyrnium rotundifolium is a biennal, aromatic plant with a ridged but not hollow stem. The upper leaves are round and periblastic, making the plant very easy to recognize. The flowers are yellow and arranged in umbels, which have up to 12 rays. It is a typical plant in olive groves, thickets and in dry locations.
