In Reference to: Wild Parsnip (Pastinaca sativa) - Wild Flowers of Sleepy Hollow Lake

Re: pollination.

I have planted a regular parsnip in my garden and true enough ants love their flowers. They have now gone to seed and I am hoping to have more next season. Being in my garden quite a bit i became familiar with the parsnip flower. Then wondering about in my yard i noticed another plant that looked like a parsnip, knowing i did not plant parsnip there i yanked it out of the ground and looked at the roots.  They sure looked and even smelled like parsnips. Not knowing what to do with it i tossed it aside. Now i know how dangerous they can be so i plan to get rid of them ASAP before my kids get a hold of them.
