Notes:

The original came from a funeral. We planted it and it has grown to over 6 feet tall. It is also dangerous to get close to. Talk about sharp needles on the end of the leaves. I do know it is not a century plant.

    You can use the root as soap, and wash your hair. Check our YouTube of native American doing this for her granddaughter!
