It is found across Europe, Siberia, the Middle East, northern Africa, North America, and South America. It is most often seen along riverbanks, roads, and ditches, as well as dry grasslands and meadows.

It grows upright to 30-60 centimetres (12-24 inches) tall with branched stems.

The leaves have long, leather-like petioles.

The inflorescence is a compound umbel with very small white flowers.

The fruit is yellow-brown.
