It is a perennial herb that is native to western United States, from Washington, Oregon and California. This herb grows in moist coastal woodland areas, and it can reach 30-45 cm in height. The leaves are ternate to twice ternate with 9-15, thin, pale green to blue-green, three-lobed, heart-shaped leaflets. The drooping white flowers bloom in an open panicle in May to July. They have 6 petals and 6 sepals, and are swept backwards. The genus name honors George Vancouver, the 18th-century English explorer.
