Buffalo Berry Fortunate

The fruit are often eaten by bears, which by legend, prefer the berries to maintain fat stores during hibernation.

Buffaloberries are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species including

The Engrailed (recorded from S. canadensis) and Coleophora elaeagnisella.
Buffaloberries are edible for humans. They are quite sour, and afterwards leave the mouth a little dry.

A touch of frost will sweeten the berries. The berries can be made into jelly, jam, or syrup, or prepared like cranberry sauce from the forefrost berries.

The berry is recognizable by being a dark shade of red, with little white dots on them. They are rough to the touch, and found on both trees and shrubs.


Butterfly Weed Fortunate

Butterfly weed (Asclepias tuberosa) is easy to grow from seed. For the quickest flowers, start seed in late August.

Fresh seed requires a period of cool, damp stratification. Provide this by placing the seed in a bag of moist peat moss and keeping it in the

refrigerator for ten to twelve weeks. Older seed will not require this cold period to break its dormancy.

Direct seed butterfly weed outside, or grow the seedlings in a nursery bed until the plants have five or six leaves,

at which time it should be moved to its permanent location. Give the seed proper attention while it is germinating;

though the mature plants will tolerate somewhat dry soils, the seedlings need to be kept moist until established.

Fall-grown plants will provide moderate bloom the following year, with improved bloom in successive seasons.
 This is a favorite in many gardens for it’s lovely flower and the butterflies it attracts, it is always blooming.
