Specialists in Giant Hogweed identification and weed removal across the UK

Growth starts in March and the plants reach 5m in height. The leaves are dark green, and form a rosette. The lobes are deeply cut and spiked at the ends. The stems are green with dark red or purple spots or blotches. Stems are ribbed, with sparse spiky hairs on the ridges. The stems are hollow and up to 100mm across.


The flowers are white, forming a large umbel. Each plant produces up to 50,000 seeds, approximately 10mm long by 7mm wide. Seeds may remain viable for up to 15 years.
