Feb 15, 2006 DEVIL'S WALKING STICK
N. Walker

Devil's Walking Stick, Aralia spinosa, is also known as Hercules Club. It has been called one of the most viciously spiny things in the vegetable kingdom! The main stem is covered with flesh tearing spines. Even the stem of the huge tripinnate leaves have barbs. On top of that, the plant is poisonous. The plant does have greenish flowers that develop during the summer season.
