Hemlock in Brindley’s Field by the River Avon, southeast Warwick
Hemlock in Brindley’s Field by the River Avon, southeast Warwick
The scientific name is Conium maculatum; maculatum means spotted, referring to the crimson spots and blotches on the pale green stems. This is the first year that I've noticed hemlock in the field, mainly isolated plants towards the river, standing tall above the six-foot nettles. My old Flora says "damp places": I wonder if seeds have been carried in by a flood. Along the River Cole in east Birmingham I've seen great stands of it. Highly poisonous.
