Feathery Wild Fennel

The Wild Fennel pictured on this site does not look like the Wild Fennel (green, feathery, tall plant) in my fields here in Louisiana. Found a picture online of what is growing at my farm by googling "Wild Fennel". Anyone know about a fennel-looking tall wild plant? It has a distinctive aroma, and no blooms.

Does it flower? It looks quite similar to the wild parsnip that is very invasive in my area, which has yellow flower umbels that look a lot like dill flowers only coarser.
