I came across this in summer, and having read about the dangers, I also wondered if there was anything at all useful about this plant. Nothing I have come across on the web tells me anything that is beneficial about this plant, yet it's ancient name seems to derive from Hercules! so here I am curious as to your experiences of it,

So, in your experience, beneficial or detrimental?.

Many thanks.

How did I just this year hear about this plant?! Oh, that is because I don't watch/read the news. I live in my happy little bubble

Anyway, now that I have heard about this crazy plant that grows in my area, I am doing some research on it so that I will be able to spot it in all stages of growth. I prefer not to get chemical rashes, thankyouverymuch!!! I'll post my findings on my blog in what I aim to be a clear, helpful guide for non-plant-experts.
