They look juicy. Are they edible ?

Toxic to us and livestock, they are much enjoyed by the wild birds that frequent the yard. They stain terribly; were once used for dye by Native Americans. The plants have pretty red stems. Really just a weed, but I like a bit around...

Does look nice. And natural bird feeders.
