Giant Hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) is an invasive non native species originally imported to the UK in the 19th century from Central and Southwest Asia.

Reaching upto 5 meters in height with umbrella shaped flowering spikes, the plant really is a giant to the plant kingdom.

Blistering can then recur over months and even years, in some cases people have sought medical attention for an extensive period.
