Good morning,

I am not aware of hogweed here in NKY. But let me confirm with others and i will be back in touch.

here's more information from our weed specialists from UK:
To my knowledge Giant Hogweed is not present in KY. Most reports of this plant come from the NE region of the US such as Pennsylvania and New York.
