Virginia Wildflower

This plant appears to be very common here (SW Virginia mountains zone 6) ... the plants grow in the shade, are two to three feet tall, and had little white flowers (they have finished flowering already) ... you can see the seed pods forming.

I kind of looks like my cimicifuga racemosa. Does it get white flowers July 4th?

Looks like an Osmorhiza sp. If you crush one of the seeds while it is green it should smell like licorice.

I crushed a seed and it definitely smelled like licorice ...
must be "sweet cicely" / "sweetroot" ...
thank you both for responding.
