Notes:

Fast growing shrublike perrenial with very few small yellow flowers. I have cut it down for the last two years. This year I decided to wait it out and now is 3 or 4 ft tall and around. Seeing the small flowers only this year.

    Since learning that sida was sorta edible, and contained ephedrine, I’ve been sampling it from time to time… Haven’t noticed any speedy effects, but there may be allergy benefits.
