I have had this rhubarb, ruby red, for 35 years and never had a problem with it. It is many plants now, not just one. I harvested it once this year and upon harvesting again I noticed rust like spots on a couple of the plants. As I was picking the stalks I see this "white foamy" hard type of stuff at the base. I don't know if it is coming from the ground or stalk itself. I have never had

I have seen this plant at my weekend place in the woods in Colorado County Texas for years. The area is Live Oak / Post Oak sandy land woods. The plant is mostly un-noticed when not blooming since it just looks like other long leaf / long stem grass it grows with. When it blooms, it puts up a tall stem with 1 or 2 flowers on the stem. The flower stem is usually about 12" tall and the flower i Small purple flower on grass lilke plant

Trying to make a bow-drill fire with the wrong materials is a good way to lose your temper. If you try to start a fire with a hand-drill using sappy materials, ie: pine or maple, you will have blisters but no fire.

Here are a few types of wood that I've used or look like they fit the bill.

a fruity taste similar to jackfruit and pineapple.

The unripe green fruits can irritate the throat and the latex of the leaves and vines can create rashes in the skin, because both contain potassium oxalate: that is the reason why the fruits have to be consumed when the scales lift up.

The fruit may be ripened by cutting it when the first scales begin to lift up

Root chicory contains volatile oils similar to those found in plants in the related genus Tanacetum which includes Tansy, and is similarly effective at eliminating intestinal worms. All parts of the plant contain these volatile oils, with the majority of the toxic components concentrated in the plant's root.[16]

Chicory is well known for its toxicity to internal parasites. Stu

The milky sap of this plant is toxic, and may cause blindness if it comes in contact with the eye.
Sheep can surprisingly eat this with no problem, but not horses or cattle.

The Heath Banksia is an attractive shrub with bright orange/red flowers. It is a good bird attracting plant especially the nectar eating types.

In summer when the flowers are dripping with nectar you can smell the almost sickeningly sweet scent a mile away. The nectar can be sucked from the flowers or flowers can be dunked in water to produce a sweet drink.

I saw this beautiful plant at Frontier City in Oklahoma City. It was quite tall, probably 4 ft. with large shiny dark green leaves and beautiful light purple flowers with bits of magenta. I asked, but no one knew what it was. I tried all the flower ID's but none matched. Thanks! Tall plant with light purple flowers

The leaf on each stalk is VERY shiny and the stalk itself is quite fleshy.

Leaves come up in March and grow to a width of 8 inches + on mature plant and grows to around 12-16 inches in height.
The best way to describe it physically is like a miniature umbrella.

Not to be confused with the umbrella plant which has multiple leaves spanning from a centralized point. This has one lea
