    Thank you so much! I agree that’s what it looks like. It would seem my dog is self-medicating since this herb is used as a detoxifier for the lymph system. She was diagnosed with cancer almost nine months ago and has way outlived her expected time frame because of a diet change, herbs and vitamins. I’m pretty happy to have this herb growing in my yard!
