Heracleum maximum ~ cow parsnip, Indian celery or pushki

The sap of the cow parsnip contains furocoumarin, a chemical responsible for a rash with burn-like blisters called erythematous vesicles. Hyperpigmentation occurs after getting the clear sap onto the skin. The chemical is photosensitive, with the rash occurring only after exposure to ultraviolet light. Because of this, phytophotodermatitis (fancy word for rash) typically occurs after using a weed-eater to remove the plants on a sunny day.

  2. Love the photos. Really like seeing the columbine. My blu0e flag or iris such as this one bloomed around first week of April. Your flower pics is a gentle reminder of just how far south I live from your area. Our spring has sprung when your winter is hanging on.
