I saw this plant at my moms house.
She didn't plant it.
It looks pretty ,but I'm suspicious of it.
Any ideas on what it is?

The flowers appear to be yellow on my screen. Is that correct? Angelica?

Some additional options according to bottony in a day: https://www.wildflowers-and-weeds.com/Plant_Families/Apiaceae.htm

I think the flower colour is white just the camera didn't get the balance right. It's most certainly not Angelic or alexanders both of which have green/yellow flowers but a very different leaf form. If it were in my garden here in Denmark I would say it was cow parsley, what does the bottom of the flower look like? are there any bracts under there? is the stem hairy or smooth?

Whichever one it is there is no need to be suspicious of it just don't eat it. and probably don't let it seed unless you want an entire garden of the stuff.

Thanks for the replies.
I'll have to check for bracts on the flowers and hair on the stem,  next time I'm over there.
I worry about it being some like giant hogweed,  my mom isn't up for policing the spread of anything dangerous like that.
I'm wondering if it could be hemlock.
Here's a photo of the stem:

With purple on the stem. I think It's hemlock. Pull that thing out.

^^ yeah smooth and purple blotched stem, get rid of that one still other things it could be it's very small for hemlock but not worth keeping about in my opinion.

Another vote for hemlock, here. Use gloves, pulling it out, because it is not only ingested, but absorbed through the skin!
