Aloha from Hawaii,

Anyone know about positive uses of *Miconia calvescen*, known simply as
"Miconia" in Hawaii*? *This seems to be the most reviled plant in the state,
and I'm wondering if there are any practical uses for this invasive. We
spend millions of dollars in Hawaii just killing this plant, but not an iota
of effort using it positively.

Mahalo nui,
Justin Hahn
