Question Asked: I'm not sure whether this plant in my frontyard(Long Island, NY) is poisonous, it just come up on the ground this spring. Would somebody help identify it?
Answer: Hi Fred -
That looks like Astillbe to me. A pretty plant that some folks will plant in groupings particularly in shady areas. I put quite a bit out under some cedar trees as it's supposed to be deer resistant. Yeah right.... Anyway, you should be enjoying some flowers on that spike soon.
