Description

Apache Plume Fallugia paradoxa at Wupatki Ruins

Ethnobotany
"Navajo call this shrub 'The Feather-Tipped Plant' as dense plumes of feathery-tailed seeds may coat bushes form April to October. The stems grow as straight as arrowshafts, for which they were often used. Pai use them for cradleboards, Navajo for weaving tools. Some believe the plant can cause insanity through witchcraft."
