NOPE ... fiddleneck is an annual weed with orange blossoms on the top tip that looks like a neck of a fiddle that unfurles for the next flower from the bottom up... grows all over here. Just 2 - 3 leaves will kill a lamb, 5 will kill a full grown ewe. I necropsied quite a few sheep in Vet. Pathology lab to determine the cause of death.
We don't have that around here, that I know of. Not many flowers at all on our land except dandelions, clover, bluets, mint, autumn olive, honeysuckle, multiflora rose. All good eats for sheep.
