Thanks for the list of all the helpful sites.  Another really helpful one is
Plants for a Future database. http://www.ibiblio.org/pfaf/D_search.html
They have about 7000 plants in the database so far and are compiling
information about the plant's use.

I was looking in it this morning to see if berries from mile-a-minute
Polygonum perfoliatum (if you don't know this plant think baby kudzu with
the vines made of tiny hand ripping saw blades with really pretty little
berries)could be used as a dye.  I still don't know the answer to that
question, but I did find out that the leaves and berries are edible along
with some other info about it's medicinal uses at the PFAF site
http://www.ibiblio.org/pfaf/cgi-bin/arr_html?Polygonum+perfoliatum .
