When looking at THIS site about pokeweed...I clicked on THEGIANTLEAPARDMOTH...just being curious. I have seen one of these here at my house. They are very beautiful. I guess because we have so much pokeweed, we have these beautiful moths.
I don't think I will ever eat pokeweed. The site says even after boiling three times, and each time discarding the water for fresh water doctors seemed to think it still had poison in it!
