Lotus wrightii

Lotus wrightii (common name Wright's deervetch) is a plant. The Zuni people apply a poultice of the chewed root to swellings that they believe are caused by being witched by a bullsnake.[1] The plant is found in the Southwestern United States. It is prevalent in Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah. [2]
