General Information

The root is edible, but can be toxic if taken in large quantities.

Medicinal
Contraceptive; Febrifuge; Laxative; Stomachic; Tonic.

The root, when ground into a powder and then mixed with oil, has been used as a parasiticide in order to kill lice

Monument Plant flowers only once in its lifetime of 20 to 80 years and then dies. It is thus called a monocarpic plant, i.e., one which grows many years, flowers once, then dies.



Genitian Flower pollenation system
This shows how the pollen is kept out of the flower. The end of the stamen is outside of the main area, as it develops pollen.
