Don't know the name of it, but it grew wild where I grew up. My friends and I used to juice the berries and make cave drawings in the barn.

Significance? Not sure, but it's a damn effective laxative.

It does grow wild all over north America.
Works well as a dye and ink.
Ingesting it is not recommended.
I'll wait a bit more before I give any clues.

Since you got the plant I'll give you a hint.
Everyone on the forum should be familiar with the document.

Tell me it was used to write the declaration or constitution. That would be pretty amazing.

I be damned. Such a humble plant too. A nuisance, really.
