It is native to Russia, Alaska, and the Northwest Territories, Yukon, and British Columbia in Canada.[1]

Light purple to white umbels bloom from late June to August, each with five lanceolate bracts. The fruits are ovate. The lower leaves are glabrous, bi- to tripinnate, and borne on petioles, while the upper leaves are nearly sessile to sessile. The stems are split at the caudex and are up to 60 centimeters tall.
