In a Nutshell:
* This plant is commonly seen along roadsides and in disturbed places in North America. It is pollinated by evening flying insects and provides seed as food for finches in the winter. The inflated bladder like flowers are interesting. It is considered a noxious weed in the state of Washington and seems to be tolerated most others.
