Queen Anne's Lace VS. Water Hemlock

Queen Anne's Lace VS. Water Hemlock
Queen Anne's Lace VS. Water Hemlock
Daucus carota VS. Cicuta maculata
One plant is relatively harmless, the other, deadly poisonous (ever hear about Socrates?) Read on. Of Queen Anne's Lace, aka. Wild Carrot. Grieve says: "Medicinal Actions and Uses: Diuretic, Stimulant, Deobstruent."
Of Water Hemlock, aka. American Cowbane, Grieve states: "It is said to be the most poisonous plant native to the United States. Foster and Duke say of Queen Anne's Lace, "Flowers in a flat cluster, with one small deep purple floret at center, 3-forked bracts beneath." They warn not to confuse it with Poison Hemlock, Conium maculatum.
Of Water Hemlock, "Stems smooth, purple streaked or spotted,... Flowers in loose umbrels." They warn not to confuse it with harmless members of the parsley family.

***~ WARNING ~***

All references to the plant Water Hemlock warn that it is poisonous.
