Devil's Claw

Devil's claw, a common name for the unicorn plant, is a native plant of southern United States. Its sticky, seed pod with a curved horn is what makes this plant unusual. The thick body of the three to four inch pod ends in a curved horn the same length. When dry this horn splits into two sharp claws.

I can't believe you posted that about devils claw, I was just trying to remember what it was called. I sure would like some for decorating a natural tree this year.

We used to get it in Texas..
