Conium maculatum, Poison Hemlock

A spectacular flowering plant which can be biennial, winter annual, or a short-lived perennial depending on the climate it is grown in. Plants are more likely to be biennial in very moist situations.

Poison Hemlock can grow to be about 6 to 10 ft. tall. It has leaves and white flowerheads resembling those of parsnips, carrots, and water hemlock. Can be quite large and spectacular in cultivation.

All parts of the poison hemlock plant contain poison alkaloids. If ingested, Conium will cause paralysis of various body systems. Paralysis of the respiratory system is the usual cause of death. Meanwhile, a victim can’t move but is aware of what is happening as the mind is unaffected until death is imminent. The most famous case of hemlock poisoning was that of Greek philosopher Socrates in 339 BC. The 70-year-old was found guilty of heresy in a trial in Athens. His sentence was death by hemlock, and he had to drink the poison by his own hand.

HARDY TO ZONE 5 OR COLDER.
