Living High on the Hogweed

Just in case you'd forgotten about last year's hogweed hysteria, officials in Connecticut are speaking up in this article in the Norwich Bulletin to remind you that the threat of invasion still exists. With its distinctive giant foliage and umbrella-like inflorescences, giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) should be easy to spot (look, but don't touch!).
