Yerba mansa ... ?growing
On a recent trip we found some yerba mansa growing along a dirt road. Daughter-in-law's family has used this herb for years! I read it now is being destroyed in its dwidling small areas by road building, home building; etc. so we carefully dug some of it & transplanted a bit of it back home in our yards to keep it growing & to give away to spread it. I love having it now & hope it spreads in my herb garden. Unfortunately when used, the root is usually dug & used so that will destroy part of the herb area in the wild. Anyone have any experience in growing/using this herb? Any special requirements? Sad to see its numbers depleted by encrouching building/civilization!
