[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This pair are on seperate plants in the same hedgerow as yesterdays fungi post a couple of feet from each other 60cm.What we have here is a well out of season Cow Parsnip (Heracleum sphondylium) also know as Hogweed because until the last centry it was cut and feed to pigs/Hogs and apparently the young shoots are edible like aspargus.
It is a native Biennial, this means it grows from seed in one year and in the next it flowers goes to seed and dies.flowering period would nornally be June to August so december is well out of season but this hedge bottom is south facing and very sheltered.
Not to be confused with its bigger brother the giant hogweed which can be very toxic when contact is made with the hairs and sap on skin, can bring you up in a very nasty rash made worse by exposure to sunlight.
