i found reading up on this plant interesting.. i won't bore you with a wiki repeat.. it's pretty but poisonous.. and cultivated for its hallucinogenic properties.. also known as stink weed..

In Texas we called it "Loco Weed", because the cattle went crazy (loco) after discovering a patch of it which they seemed to enjoy eating....

right? oddly enough it's only growing in the dirt i got from a farm.. perhaps they tossed all they found on the manure pile.. hmm..

Yeah....that's the "crap shoot" when you purchase soil which may be infested with "who knows what".....right? It could contain seeds or eggs from organisms which you might not welcome into your family of plants & animals..... Better keep a close eye on the area for tell tale signs....Good Luck!!!grinning
