    David Dennis

    How do I find out the medicinal uses for this plant? I’ve searched Google and you are the only group I can find that mentions its medicinal uses. I thought I had seen in used by some of the tribes in the American Southwest, but can’t find the research data.

      Hello David,
      Our research turned up mainly fibre uses as indicated in our monograph. Native uses include “twine and course sacks.”
