Hemlock stems

Hemlock (Conium maculatum) is known to be poisonous to rabbits and other animals. Rabbits are unlikely to eat it but it is wise not to pick the plant. It can be differentiated from other umbelliferae plants by the red blotches on the smooth, shiny stems. In cross section the stems are circular and hollow.
