Today is the second in a multi-part series on medicinal plants, trees and herbs. Today we continue with 8 plants and trees that are very easy to identify, not native to North America, grow prevalently in the wild or are heavily used in gardens and landscapes and have multiple uses for each plant.

WARNING - You alone are responsible for any items you consume, you must be sure of species identification, if you have any doubt, don’t put it in your body. Always start with small does and slowly gauge what happens as you increase it. While the plants here are easy to identify there are plants out there that can and do kill people. Again use caution, be certain of identification and I take no responsibility for anyone who chooses to not follow this piece of advice.

Tune in today as we discuss these 8 Non Native North American Medicinal Plants…
