    You’re welcome! According to sources it’s naive to Europe & Asia. This plant has been introduced into North America. Although various sources proclaiming the nutritional values of this plant, not knowing others foods allergy, I’m reluctant advocating for consuming food or plants. I suggest you could join a local foraging group to learn more about eating wild plants or their medicinal properties from the link below. Best to you Travis! Laura https://www.foragingtexas.com/

    Thanks Laura. You nailed it. I don’t know if its new here; or I just didn’t notice it. I don’t know whether to eat some or not. Is it heart healthy?
