Angelica venenosa / Parsley Family

Danger - Poisonous
I had the great opportunity to go on a hunt for rare wildflowers with University of Kentucky professor, Dr. Thomas Barnes in the Daniel Boone National Forest near Corbin, KY. He is the author of The Rare Wildflowers of Kentucky published in the summer of 2008 by the University of Kentucky Press. Dr. Barnes and I began corresponding 2 years ago when he found a wildflower on this website that he needed for his book.
During our walk through the woods and the weeds, we came across several of these pretty, lacy wildflowers. I'm including the flowers we found on this trip in the Tennessee galleries because they are also found in our state. The only other Angelica found in Tennessee grows high in the Appalachian mountains. It is a larger and more robust plant.
