I don't have the blessing of its presence, so I've not done a thorough 
inquiry into its totality! But at the very least it discourages the 
lazy-fare monocultural use of the burnt-out pastures it grows in! But 
there are some uses amongst the Centaureas, no? They have a strong name- 
anyone know why?
