Water Parsnip Plant


Water Parsnip Plant

This native water plant is closely related to an important medieval root vegetable from Europe called Skirret. Water parsnip has a history of edibility here in the states but it is often shied away from by people because it looks a bit like the poisonous water hemlock. This species has been properly identified for our nursery and while it does look similar to other carrot family members that grow in wetland habitats there are distinct characteristics that have been properly keyed out. This plant attracts a wide variety of insects and grows in moderate to very wet soil, and even standing water.
