Hemlock is another very tall, robust Umbellifer (member of the Carrot family with umbrella-like flower heads) that lurks dangerously on roadsides, river banks and waste ground. The flowers are white and the stems are purple spotted (a big clue to identification). In flower during the summer months.

Warning : This plant is very poisonous.
