Small erect plant, with tiny, yellow, 5-petalled
flowers in small clusters at the ends of long stalks, the whole
forming an open flat-topped cluster. Leaves are divided into
3-5 leaflets, which are often further divided into smaller leaflets.
Ultimate leaflets egg-shaped leaflets, untoothed. Blooms in
mid spring in open woods and on rocky slopes.
Very common on western slope of the Park, especially
near the Grand Staircase.
Heart-leaved Alexanders and Golden Alexanders bloom in
the same area about the same time. The first has heart-shaped basal leaves while both have flowers in much
denser clusters and toothed leaflets.
