Yerba Mansa

Taken near the south pond at El Dorado Nature Center in Long Beach this past Saturday.  A sign in the nature center points out that the roots to this plant are aromatic and were once chewed to relieve sore throats and were also applied to the skin for skin problems.  However, the picture accompanying the sign was not as good as this one.  :-)
