This goes out to permaculturists in the tropics.

Do any of you guys know any beneficial uses for *Miconia calvescens*? Here
in Hawaii, it is roundly considered a noxious weed devoid of any redeeming
qualities. But it has been my experience that many botanical villains often
have positive uses -- like dandelions, some thistles, etc.

Best regards,
