Description

(Yerba del manso) (Lizard Tail) Family: Lizard Tail (Saururacea) Creeping herbaceous perennial. Native to the Southwestern US and California. Hardy to 10 degrees F. Does well in pots. The succulent, ovate leaves give rise to white, sometimes rose-tinged coneflowers. The entire plant smells good--spicy and warm. The tincture of the dried root is used against colds and arthritis. The dried root can be powdered and used as an application against athlete's foot or as a general antiseptic dressing, much like one would use goldenseal root. The plant prefers sodden soils and hot sun, an unusual combination. It is often found in association with geothermal springs. As might be expected, the plant is a heat dependent germinator, and high temperatures (up to 100 degrees F) and long germination times (about 3 months) are usually required to get results. Open Pollinated 100 seeds/pkt. -
