Rootbeer Leaf - Piper auritum

Though commonly used south of the border I have read that it has compounds that should not be consumed in large quantities. I grow it but I don't eat it. Its a relative of the plant that gives us peppercorns for black pepper.

It grows wild in my yard and I think it's so attractive!
