For more than a century, gardeners in certain parts of America have had to deal with a noxious plant called the giant hogweed. At first glance, the eye-catching weed could be considered harmless, but that’s certainly not the case. For you see, it’s capable of causing serious burns if you venture too close to it.
Unlike a typical weed that you’d find in your backyard, the giant hogweed is known to reach heights of around 14 feet as well as boasting some sizable leaves. Indeed, a single leaf can have a span of up to 5 feet. In addition to that, the invasive plant also sprouts a number of white flowers at its crown.
