Description

This is a fairly small version of the tree that dominates the Pampas. A guide told us that it is actually an herb, ( misinformation corrected by the comment below from Richard...thanks.)and that it was the only shade on the pampas when people started using the area for cattle. You might notice that the picture of me on the right side of the gigapan is in motion....I thought the robot had cleared the area where I had been leaning up against the tree.

    This tree is certainly not a herb. Parts of it may be used in making "herbal" medicines, or tea, but that doesn't make a tree an herb. The strict botanical definition of herb: a small plant without wood in the stems or root. Common usage includes any plant used in making "botanicals", be it tree, shrub, or small herbaceous plant without wood. Large monocots, like bananas, are also considered herbaceous, since there is no woody stem. The "trunk" of these plants consists of overlapping leaf bases.
