Notes.

In India a poultice is made from dried leaves soaked in water and placed on indolent ulcers to promote healing; the flower is used as an emetic ( Jain and DeFilipps 1991). In Indonesia an infusion of the plant is employed to treat catarrh of the bladder and also used as a febrifuge ( Perry 1980). The plant is known to have an astringent effect on the bowels; and is used to treat fever, dysentery, stomach- ache, stomach ulcers, and kidney stones ( Perry 1980).

A tannin-like bitter principle has been found, and an amorphous substance "which seems to be an alkaloid" has been isolated ( Perry 1980).
