roadside weed

pieheart(6)July 4, 2012

On my way to and from work I see this weed: it resembles dill, angelica, etc. in that the flower is a cluster, umbel. The color of the whole plant, flowers and all, is a lime green/yellow-green. I've done searches for all the plants I know that might look like what I see, but the color is what's throwing me off. Nothing that turned up in my searches matches what I see as far as color. As far as I can tell, in size it ranges from two feet to maybe four feet tall. Hard to say since I'm usually traveling 50mph when I see it.

Unfortunately, since I see this plant from the car on a busy road I can't describe the leaves or even take a picture. I'm hoping that someone will read this and recognize it right off the bat.

No, the foliage is too dark. What I'm seeing is foliage and flower exactly the same color (or so it seems from the car). And it's truly a lime green, or yellow-green. It's like a giant dill plant, if dill was invasive and grew wild. I wish I could get a good look at the foliage, that would help a lot with identification.
