Description

Commonly known as hogweed, common hogweed or cow parsnip, The plant provides a great deal of nectar for pollinators. The plant is common in grassland, herb-rich meadows, in hedges, meadows and woods, road verges and railway embankments, waste and cultivated ground. The young shoots are considered excellent eating by many foragers.

Often this species needs to be planted just before the frost or needs a long period of cold for Stratification, so its seed dormancy can be overcome.
