Ramie is one of the strongest natural fibers. It exhibits even greater strength when wet. When the plant begins flowering, or just before, it signals both a decline in growth and the plant being at its maximum fibre content, and is harvested. The flowers bloom from August to October, and small flowers form tufts at the base of the foliage.
