Have a plant you can't identify?  Post it here and let our local botanical experts (aka forum members) have a shot at identifying it.

I don't think the leaves are the right shape for that.  To be clear, I haven't figured out what this plant is yet either.  I thought it was poison ivy, but accidental contact with it proved that idea wrong.

Why wouldn't it be poison oak?

The photos, according to the link, were taken at Dusty Lake in Central Washington, where there is tons of it just like along the Columbia Gorge, etc...

And to come in contact with it and not have anything happen doesn't rule it out as well. As a child I never could get a rash from it while growing up in Oregon. Not that is until one time when I was about 12 yrs old and broken branches got the oils from inside the plant stems on me. I know a few people who don't get it from rubbing it on their arms to show me. Others can get it very bad just by touching a glove that was in it.

Not saying it might be something different that just looks a lot like it...but the reasons thus far are not eliminating it from being poison oak either.

It is amazing how each person reacts differently and how it can change. I used to show off to buddies and take a plant, rub it on my arms, and just see if I got it ever. Once I had a very bad rash from that plant stem broken getting internal oils directly on me, since that day I now will react to it if I just brush against it.

You don't even want to hear my story about what happened to someone who breathed in smoke from it burning once.... eek.gif

I posted these before, but had no luck. Maybe this time? (Both are of a plant in the South Fork of the Snoqualmie valley near Twin Falls.)

BTW Alan, Nice pic of the bitterroot for your Avatar. Where did you shoot that?

Thanks--that clump of bitterroot was up along the Westburg Trail heading up onto Manastash Ridge...mid-May or so a couple of years ago.

It can be extremely difficult to identify LBM's (little brown mushrooms) especially when immature like this one.

That is most definitely poison hemlock. It is the second most deadly plant in North America. The Latin name is quite helpful here: Conium maculatum. A macule is a non-raised skin lesion (e.g. Port-wine stain) The stem of poison hemlock has distinctive burgundy spots which are visible in your photo. The plant is poisonous throughout with the seeds having the most poison. I am most familiar with it being poisonous to eat. But this article lists ocular and skin irritation as other maladies. http://www.toxinz.com/Demo/6/UExIMDIyLzEwNGg%3D
Poison hemlock is the poison given to Socrates for corrupting the youth of Athens.
