I live in central Maryland and found this plant in my back yard thinking it was wild carrot. It has a pleasant smell like carrot, but clearly isn’t. I was trying to ID it using my wild edible field guide,but it doesn’t quite match any in there, even the poisonous look alikes. It could be a cultivated plant from the carrot family that escaped from the neighbors as well. Any help is appreciated.

    This might be a species of Angelica. There is about 60 species in this genus. Not seeing the whole plant, it is hard to narrow down its ID. From what I have learned, Angelica is a great for herb uses and medicinal properties.
