Yes - sorry, I have the two plants growing next to each other and the picture was taken after the Lomatium had flowered.

Tim: your picture of Lomatium columbianum is stunning: but white!

I thought the white was the Athamanta turbith (?)

Edited to say:
You both posted as I was doing mine, I guess.  Isn't it interesting that you and I, Lori, chose the same wording...

Lots more beauties- love them all-- the Oreoxis is very cute! I think I have a few Cymopterus seedlings-- some I think came up second spring..
Alplains has a lot of these, have to check there for Oreoxis...

Some of these remind of several local umbellifers I am fond of, I'll have to dig up pictures--such as the very charming, subtle Sweet Cicely (blunt-fruited; Osmorhiza depauperata) which is common in the woods here.. I sent seed to Stephen, hopefully he gets some babies :)

Unfortunately, there were no babies, perhaps next spring?

Cohan: I now have lots of babies of depauperata, just a long gestation period!

Great to know :) these have been emerging in the woods here the last few weeks, always great to see those pretty leaves :)

This is Athamanta turbith flowering again this summer on a raised bed, and it still holds pride of place in my affection for umbels; such a delicate and beautiful plant. The aquilegia is triternata, but unfortunately this has crossed with other more vigorous species close by in the garden and a lot of very different specimens have appeared on the bed as well.

A handsome and elegant Apiaceae, Tim!
Here's another kind of flowers: Bupleurum longifolium from seed a couple of years ago.

The Athamanta looks good! I have a small plant and am yet to see what the fuss is about...

Lomatium urticulatum (I think it's this species, but please correct me if wrong) flowered for the first time this year, in the first picture with L. nudicaule:

Great contrast between those two Stephen - nudicaule is so distinct but urticulatum resembles so many other species! I'm aiming to gather more information on umbels over this coming autumn/winter so will have to quiz you on what you grow! The number of people who grow these American species must be pretty much counted on one hand.

Trond - that longifolium is very striking. I have grown it but it never seems long lived. Wonderful flower arrangers plant!
