Heracleum may mean [more]
The genus Heuchera () includes at least 50 species of herbaceous perennial plants in the family Saxifragaceae, all native to North America. Common names include alumroot and coral bells. They have palmately lobed leaves on long petioles, and a thick, woody rootstock. The genus was named after Johann Heinrich von Heucher (1677?1746), an 18th century German physician. [more]
Junipers are coniferous plants in the genus Juniperus () of the cypress family Cupressaceae. Depending on taxonomic viewpoint, there are between 50-67 species of juniper, widely distributed throughout the northern hemisphere, from the Arctic, south to tropical Africa in the Old World, and to the mountains of Central America.

Herbs biennial. Rootstock thick, long-conic. Stem hollow or solid, ribbed. Leaves pinnate, usually glabrous on both surfaces; pinnae serrate or pinnatifid, sessile. Umbels terminal and lateral; bracts and bracteoles absent; rays numerous, ascending. Calyx teeth minute, triangular. Petals ovate, yellow, incurved at apex. Stylopodium short-conic; styles short, divaricate. Fruit broad ellipsoid, glabrous, strongly flattened dorsally; dorsal ribs thinly filiform, the lateral broadly winged; vittae 1 in each furrow, 2-4 on commissure. Seed face plane. [more]
Herbs, biennial or monocarpic perennial. Root fusiform, yellow-red. Stem usually solitary, densely pubescent, angled, corymbose-branched, base clothed in fibrous remnant sheaths. Leaves 12 pinnatisect. Inflorescence compound umbels; bracts and bracteoles present; flowers hermaphrodite. Calyx teeth minute. Petals whitish, obcordate, apex narrow, inflexed, outer petals slightly enlarged (radiant). Fruit broadly ovate, strongly dorsally compressed, densely minute-pubescent; dorsal ribs filiform, marginal ribs broadly thin-winged, distal parts inflated and corky; outer mesocarp layer parenchymatous, inner layer sclerified; vittae large, 1 in each furrow, 2 on commissure. Seed face plane. Carpophore 2-parted to base. [more]
At least 9 species and subspecies belong to the Genus Zosima.
