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.
