Is it true that it can stun animals when added to a waterhole?

Does anyone have any book suggestions for ID'ing native plans as edibles or medicinal? :lol:

The main book i go to is Wild food plants of australia by Tim Low, some others i have Bush tucker field guide by Les Hiddins, 

The weed forager's handbook by Adam Grubb & Annie Raser-Rowland,  Plants of central queensland by Eric Anderson,  Australian medicinal plants by E.V Lassak & T. McCarthy and of course the internet is very handy : )

The wikipedia page on hopwoodii claims it would stun animals when laced in a watering hole... Seems interesting but im sceptical about the potency

I don't know but i wouldn't be surprised if it works for at least a short time, especially if you make a bit of a rock pool or in still water, they are strong alkaloids and as far as i know it has goodly amounts in it, D. Myoporoides x D. Leichhardtii has up to 7%

 I think a good sized bunch crushed a bit and added to the water as fish poison or to stun animals seems fairly plausible

cool as I love my natives. this is a duboisia hybrid [ myoporoides x hopwoodii]

Does Duboisia hopwoodii have the same properties. It is fairly common where I am at. 

There is a Utube vid of it being harvested for a pharmaceutical company in Australia.

Duboisia Hopwoodie I think. Haven't been game to try it yet. I've dried it to tobacco and was going to crush a bit up with some baking soda to put behind my lip.

Scaevola Spinescens. Five petal flower reaching out to give you a hand. Common names Maroon bush, Cancer plant , currant bush. I've had a tea from this plant many times and never had any reaction to it. Although illegal to sell in WA because it's poison aparrently but ok to sell cigarettes

Will have to stomp back in here with better optics, there's greenhoods and other rare orchids about to boom in this neck of the woods.

blue_flax.thumb.jpg.372cd98726565f8adc24f02b0e8d186e.jpg 

Blue flax lily, eaten many of these and are slightly sweet and tasty tho I have eaten from one clump that had a slight burning sensation so I am guessing the edibility is variable from plant to plant ?

Hi Bardo, are you still looking for Native edible books?, yeah I have a few Tim Low ones as well plus a few others.

 

I also have a copied to PDF version of Tim Low's out of print Wild Herbs of Australia and New Zealand and can send you that if you're interested. I copied it from a library years agoand then copied it to my computer to PDF. I had to make it in 2 sections because it was 2 big to email as one.

Another one by AB & JW Cribb called WIld Food in Australia os ok as well but dosent have much in the way of ikkustrations though. It is still good for general info, here's a link to one for sale:
