over 4 ft tall has purple leading off the stock. no hairs on plant. has not flowered. contacted county extension who advised waiting till it bloomed. It is in my flower garden and I’m just not sure if it is and how to remove it if it turns out to be. Also we are north of atlanta at the foot of sweat moutain.

    That’s a very helpful link, thank you Bobby! Beside the stems ‘pinkish green coloration’ the leaves also appear to be more lacy looking than those from the above images. But flowers are needed for a confirmed ID. When it blooms please make new post with flowers photo. For now check out a Biden species, the Spanish needles (Biden bipinnata). From these included link. Best wishes!

    I have never spotted Poison Hemlock along my beaten paths in W. Georgia. I my opinion it is not a common roadside weed in these parts. I have seen colonies of it in NE Tennessee so I am familiar with it. The distinguishing difference will be seen on the lower stem/stalk of the plant. An unmistakeable pinkish green coloration is its warning flag. Caution Will Robinson!
