Berberis vulgaris
Common Barberry is the alternate host for wheat rust, a fungus and LSD derivative that in pure form can cause spontaneous gangrene to those who consume it. I don’t think this discourages our natural-enlightenment psychonauts who will eagerly consume anything they read online.

Berberis thunbergii
Japanese Barberry is a plant that encroaches upon much of the remaining habitat of native flora and is a major host for ticks. What I see is that much of the havoc that the white-tailed deer are commonly blamed for is more attributable to the presence of this plant. More research is needed and while thorough manual removal is difficult convincing, Scott M does a good job of this the blog linked here.Observed May 13 2013 with Carol G and Eric L in Bartholomew’s Cobble, Sheffield, MA

Euphorbia cyparissias

After escaping the whims of human-controlled ornamental plantings, cypress surge has propagated throughout many mid-western grasslands. Scientists concerned to see cypress spurge displacing the ever-shrinking habitat of native flora have been combating the plant with herbicides, fire, and european grazing animals. Today the scientists most cherished, low-cost weapon for this plant is the introduction of the European leafy spurge flea beetle Aphthona, to keep the plants suppressed, albeit not eliminated.
