Why is it good for my garden? One might think this would be a dangerous plant to have in your yard. The big leaves and bright red berries make it a very attractive plant and it supports wild life. Devilsclub had had many uses over the years from fish hooks and snares to medicinal uses. This plant is now being used for diabetes and a handful of other uses. Great plant to add to a place you want to keep people out of since most of the plant is armed with large spine.
