Indigenous Plants and Native Uses in the Northeast
Look at the plants growing around you:
Climbing out onto the trail along Barrows Pond, bushy plants and shrubs threaten to brush against you, do not touch the poison sumach (Rhus species)!. The bedstraw (Galium aparine) here can be sticky but at least won't give you a rash. American elderberry (Sambuvus canadensis) bushes through here boast berry clusters in mid-summer.
