The Info List - Turnera Ulmifolia

--- Advertisement ---

ulmifolia, the ramgoat dashalong[1] or yellow alder, is a species of plant of family Passifloraceae, native to Mexico
and the West Indies. A recent study found that yellow alder potentiated the antibiotic activity against methicillin—resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).[2] Description[edit] Turnera
ulmifolia grows erect, with dark toothed leaves and small, yellow-orange flowers, and is often found as a weed growing on roadsides. This plant is commonly misidentified with the closely related T. diffusa in horticultural commerce, causing it to be often misrepresented as "Damiana."[3][4][5] References[edit]
