    This is also called Spotted Jewelweed. It is used to counteract poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac. Only edible at short time of year in early spring when shoots are emerging from the ground. Boiled and eaten like asparagus. Extreme caution is needed when harvesting young shoots as the difficulty is increased in identification and there are many poisonous plants that have young shoots too.
