COWBANE
Myrkkykeiso Cicuta virosa
Raasepori, Finland

Very poisonous plant.
A single bite of the root (which has the highest concentration of cicutoxin) can be sufficient to cause death.
Native to northern and central Europe, northern Asia and northwestern North America.
It grows in wet meadows, along streambanks and other wet and marshy areas.
