Cow Parsnip (Heracleum lanatum Parsley Family) - Identification is by the very broad cluster of very small white 5-parted flowers in fairly flat-topped umbels that are atop a hairy stem that can be up to eight feet high. The stem is hollow and usually fuzzy. Flower petals are notched. The flower umbel is compound, composed on 15 to 30 stalked smaller umbels. On the stem the base of the leaf enlarges to a clasping sheath, the leaves having soft hairs and are 3-parted with toothed or palmate leaflets.
