Yerba Mansa (Anemopsis californica) potted plant, organic
Family: Lizard Tail (Saururacea)
Hardy to Zones 7 to 12
(Manso, Yerba del Manso, Lizard Tail) Creeping herbaceous perennial. Native to the Southwestern US and California. Does well in pots. The succulent, ovate leaves give rise to white, sometimes rose-tinged coneflowers. The entire plant smells good–spicy and warm. Traditional usage (American Indian, TWM): colds, arthritis athlete’s foot, wound dressing, general antibiotic and antifungal. The plant prefers sodden soils and hot sun, an unusual combination. It is often found in association with geothermal springs, and there is a good wild stand at Jemez springs in NM. The plants make multiple upright flowers to 20 inches tall, and may be spaced 1 to 2 feet apart.
