Deadly water hemlock identification vs. elderberries

elderberry-or-hemlock

In my new video, I compare water hemlock with elderberry:

Though water hemlock looks similar to elderberry, it’s pretty easy to identify. It’s shorter and has a very distinctive look to the blooms, almost like a firecracker.

Elderberries and water hemlock both have toxic foliage and stems, so don’t eat either of them, obviously.

The berries that form on elder are unmistakeable; water hemlock doesn’t make berries at all.

Anyhow, watch the video – you’ll see the difference.
