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. 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 8 inches tall, and may be spaced 1 to 2 feet apart.
