Caution! Learn wild parsnip!

Here are some pictures I took of wild parsnip at RRX. The leaves are compound, fairly large, and have rough,toothed edges. The flowers are large, yellow, and flat-topped, kind of like a bigger, yellow version of Queen Anne’s Lace. The flowering stalks are thick, and can get pretty tall. However, not all the plants will be flowering, so make sure you know what the leaves look like! The foliage has oils that will make your skin incredibly sensitive to sunlight, so it can give you terrible blisters.
