Giant Hogweed
Native to the Caucasus region and Central Asia, giant hogweed has spread across New York and New England as well as sprouting up in parts of Maine. Its height, broad leaves, and floral umbrellas has made it favorite for ornamental gardeners which prompted the spread.

Giant hogweed forms dense stands that can displace native plants and reduce wildlife interests. This plant is as dangerous as it may be beautiful. The sap of giant hogweed can cause severe skin inflammations when the skin is exposed to sunlight or ultraviolet rays. Initially, the skin turns red and starts itching. Then blisters form as it burns within 48 hours, which form scars that can last several years. If the sap gets in eyes, it can cause temporary to permanent blindness.
