Those water hyacinths that are invasive and choking all the waterways make really pretty stuff. I wonder if any place just sells them dried in sacks?

The answer is of course yes, you can buy raw bundles of dried water hyacinth and then weave it yourself. Now that we don't have the steady supply of plastic bags to weave, I wonder what other nuisance plants would make nice home craft supplies?
