Today’s Featured Flower Photo of the Day:
The Water Hemlock

Here is today’s featured photo flower presentation. To let the is year shine bright, I am featuring fine photos of flowers, continuing to honor the brighter side of life again this year. Today’s Flower of the day is the The Water Hemlock.

The Water Hemlock, or the Cicuta Douglasii is a poisonous wetland wildflower, is commonly found in wet meadows and pastures and along the banks of streams. Water hemlock is the most violently toxic plant that grows in North America, with only a small amount of the toxic substance in the plant being needed to producing a poisoning in either of livestock, pets or humans. The toxin cicutoxin acts directly on the central nervous system, which is a violent convulsant. The Water Hemlock starts growing in the spring, and grows to the size of 3 to 7 feet tall, and groves of cluster flowers that are individually miniature. The Water Hemlock loves water and grow in or around wet areas, near creeks, near rivers, in shady areas and in low lying areas. The Water Hemlock is always poisonous and inedible, and it is definitely not recommended to touch the flowers and then touch and ingest food. If ingested, please seek proper medical attention or call 9-1-1.
