Historical Uses: The Choctaw tribe was reported to take infusions of the root for fevers. The Seminole tribe used the plant to treat body aches and fevers

Special Note: When exposed to freezing temperatures, a white, flossy substance will be excreted from the base of the stem. This leads to the common name “Frostweed”
