|| DEVIL'S WALKING STICK
Close-up the spines on Devil's Walking stick. The plant has dark purple berries that are toxic to humans but provide nutrition to birds and wildlife.
Contact with the bark or roots can cause brief skin irritation. Devil's walking stick will send new shoots out into surrounding plantings. These can be difficult to remove, since the spines are so hard and sharp that you can't get a good grip on the plant even with heavy gloves.
An all around nice plant to have!
