Heracleum aquilegifolium for confirmation / correction : 9 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (7)

Tung, Maharashtra.
Points in favor are:
1. The petiole / petiolule is winged.
2. Leaves ternate-pinnate (c/f H. grande)



Note this genus is often circumscribed as Heracleum sect. Tetrataenium DC., but see Logacheva et al, 2010.
yes it is Heracleum aquilegifolium. the name of the genus probably have changed.


Thank you for the confirmation … This species has not been posted on our group site earlier either.


Beautiful presentation depicting all parts of the plant.
