Giant Hog Weed: WARNING Handle with Care…

For all you nature lovers check out this giant hogweed found by Christen Adolfi in Oswego, NY. It can grow up to 15 feet tall and have flowers 2 ft. in diameter! It may be pretty but I found out that the sap can make you light sensitive so that large blisters or bluish purple scars can develop on your skin. So don’t pick it without protection.
