Beware of Hogweed!

Tis the season for roadside stops, but be aware of the vegetation alongside the road. The plant pictured here in this photo from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is known as giant hogweed, and it can cause a rash worse than poison ivy. BBC member Lydia Cunningham shares her experiences with it in this article.  If you’ve seen giant hogweed in Maryland, please contact the Plant Protection and Weed Management Section of the Maryland Department of Agriculture at (410) 841-5920
