Ligusticum Linnaeus. Lovage.

Key to Ligusticum

A genus of 40-50 species, perennial herbs, circumboreal and north temperate. Zhou et al. (2020) and Plunkett et al. (2018a) make clear that Ligusticum in this broad circumscription is rampantly polyphyletic, and restrict it to three species widely distributed in Asia, Europe and n. North America. Ligusticum canadense awaits an appropriate genus placement, probably in an expanded and "re-recognized" Cynapium Nuttall ex Torrey & A. Gray 1840 (Zhou et al. 2020).
