Wild Chervil can be identified by its white flower and fern-like leaf. The flowers have five petals and are clustered together at the end of a single stem. The plant can commonly grow up to 2 m in height.

As with many noxious weeds there are a few plants that look very similar to wild chervil, but not share their invasive tendencies.:
- Goutweed (Aegopodium podagraria) - its leaves have white boarders around the edges, and are not fern-like in appearance.
- Poison Hemlock (Conium Maculatum) - has purple spots on the stems and is most easily distinguished by its size since it can grow up to 2 to 3 m high.
