Hemlock water-dropwort - one of our coolest, and deadliest, wildflowers

Firstly, it looks good. Its a very robust and attractive plant, and is green pretty much throughout winter. When it blooms, the smell is, well, like that winey type smell you get in a glass when its finished and been left for the night. Who doesn't like a flower that smells like booze?? Secondly, I love dangerous things, and this plant will pretty much kill you if you so much as look at it in a funny way. Plants are plants and we take them so much for granted, and it seems weird, which is part of the appeal, that you have to treat a plant with the greatest respect. Knowing that something apparently so innocuous, can be so lethal.

    Hmmm. Looks green and luscious ... and not unlike some Parsley. Will definitely steer clear!
