Heracleum persicum (weed) Desf. - (Persian hogweed)
This plant is native to western Asia (Turkey, Iran, Iraq) and has been introduced into England as an ornamental in the 1830s. It has spread to other parts of Europe (Rijal et al., 2015) and is now an environmental weed, mainly in northern parts of Europe.
The plant can grow to a height of several metres and propagates through seeds only. A single plant produces 6-8,000 seeds per year. The seeds disperse through wind, water and by human activities.
