Bloodweed is a nifty little borage. If you pluck a leaf, you'll note reddish 'veins' of sap that will stain your hand. Really. (Push the vein part around to write your name on your hand. Or forehead, if you like. Or someone else's forehead. Do the latter at your peril.)

Peppergrass is a nifty little mustard. The foliage and fruits turn reddish-purple late in the season. Really colorful. As the common name suggests, this plant (especially the fruits, to me) have a pepper flavor. Yum.
How did you do?
