Cow Parsnip
The Latin name Heracleum is very appropriate for this plant as it truly does grow to Herculan proportions, sometimes up to 10 feet. You will find Cow Parsnip starting to bloom in the Darrington, Washington area in later June along roads where there is full sun and seepage and growing in profusion on glades as the snow banks begin to melt. Goat Lake
and Peek-A-Boo Lake are good places to see Cow Parsnip.

May – June
