Be _very_ careful with Skirrets. They are almost as unkillable as Kudzu once they become "established" - They propogate happily from root fragments, seed, runner-rootlets, even broken stem sections if conditions are just right; and in many parts of the New World, they're an invader species, crowding out native plants. I've been told they should only be grown in a pot place on concrete, and all flowers destroyed the second they form, if you live in New England.
