what's the name of that giant plant that burns you severely if you even touch it, and grows about 10-15 feet tall? it's up in Canada? that's a good one to know about. It looks a little like Queen Anne's Lace, but it's bigger.
That'll be Giant Hogweed Heracleum mantegazzianum. Many members of that family are poisonous or hazardous, and some people who are more sensitive than others will get a skin reaction even from common hogweed, but Giant is the really nasty one. It's an offence to cause it to grow in the wild here.
