Bryonia alba found popping up through the new stream
restoration site at the South Fork of the Palouse River along Palouse River Drive
just south of Moscow on April 17, 2004. It resembled a cow parsnip in its young stage at
first glance (similar color and size), but obviously different with the
hairy stems and leaves, multiple stems, tendrils, etc.
Root segment is nine inches long, four inches in diameter at its widest point and weighs
1 lb 2 ounces.
