An erect perennial of sandy, dry, grazed grassland and on calcareous ground, Burnet-saxifrage grows about 80 cm tall. It bears umbels of tiny white flowers, each umbel having 6 to 20 rays, each petal having a long, inwardly-curved point. They bloom from June to September. This is a branched, downy plant and it has stems which are slightly ridged. The basal leaves are oval and pinnate while the bi-pinnate stem leaves are divided into long narrow segments. A native plant, Burnet-saxifrage belongs to the Apiaceae family.
I first recorded this plant at Lady's Island Lake, Co Wexford in 2010 when I also photographed it.
