    I found what I thought were alexanders growing along the roadside near a village close to home, but its not near the coast, they also had an unusually distinct smell which I can't describe, but as with most umbilifers I tend to give them a wide birth just incase I've mis-identified them.

    Alexanders can grow inland, but its mainly by the coast you find them.
    Here are some photos of them.. The bottom picture is what you are looking for at this time of year..
