Hairy Yerba Santa, Eriodictyon trichocalyx, is native to the mountains of Southern California. Where it produces some of the most attractive flowers of the Yerba Santa in California. It grows in mixed habitats ranging from Pine forests through Joshua Tree woodlands, always on the edges of the desert, but not in the desert. Erba santa is good for erosion control. It will sucker along roots and tie-up an area. It's very drought tolerant. It is a pioneer plant that grows in disturbed soil so grows best in full sun. Yerba Santa functions to fill disturbed ecosystems until dominant species are able to regenerate and regrow over scared area. Best kept in a large pot as it sees most garden situations as disturbed ecosystem that needs to be filled in. Native Americans used this plant medicinally for respiratory ailments.
