Other info. - This species can be found scattered throughout much of Missouri but is absent from a few locations such as the extreme NW and SW corners of the state. The plant is easy to ID in the field because of its distinctive flowers, which have recurved lobes. This species has the typical white milky sap of the Apocynaceae and can be toxic if eaten. Traditionally the plant was used as an emetic and a diuretic. The strong fibers of the plant can be made into rope.
