American "Poison hemlock" or Irish "Devil's porridge"
Conium (pronounced /koʊˈnaɪ.əm/ or /ˈkoʊniəm/) is a genus of two species of highly poisonous perennial herbaceous flowering plants in the family Apiaceae, native to Europe and the Mediterranean region (C. maculatum), and to southern Africa (C. chaerophylloides).
