It very well could be Lori. Alot of farmers used to grow it here in North Carolina, though my father never has, but it does grow wild in this area.

It is a kind of buckwheat..isn't it? like corn it is used to make a syrup, I think. a preservative for food and a sweetener, right? guess I should stop trying to pick your brains and google the stuff! lol.... I have begun an effort to save what's left of the old gray matter... when I think I remember something...which I knew without question when younger...I try repeating it out loud to myself. Then, if it sound right...I give myself credit for remembering...instead of second guessing myself. It doesn't work every time but ...who's perfect?

Yes,it was grown to make syrup if that's what it is. I hate to say it but we just consider it a Btw I love your idea of remembering things, I'll have to give it a try myself. There are days when I definitely feel like it's all I can do to remember my name.

At least we're not at the point of introducing ourselves to our husbands every morning.... "Hi, My name's Lori, What's yours?" LOL.....
Call me crazy but I love this plant... I have only one...but I could see a clump of this making a statement backing onto a fence or a wall...the other thing I like that's being treated like a weed is the pampas grass. It's escaped gardens and grows wild in wet places along the highways. Like will grow on the roadsides...but I can't get it to do well in my garden! hahaha... rats!
