Small white flowering plant
Can anyone help
me identify this small plant which has popped up in the grass now.. late November. It's about 6 inches tall. Thanks
It is a large plant masquerading as a small one!
Common Hogweed, Hieracleum spondinium, which can grow to over 5ft if well nourished. Yours probably gets cut down regularly. It makes quite a nice, stately umbellifer if given its head but it does seed around rather, and the the roots on a full grown one are quite a challenge to get out!
You have been warned
....Heracleum sphondylium....common hogweed
Perthshire. SCOTLAND .
....common hogweed ID.
Not to be confused with Giant hogweed (
), an invasive and dangerous species. I had one specimen of the latter, recommended by a local nursery, years ago and got severe burns from it.
