Hi there. I came across this blog while looking up "Espanta muerto" because I have some growing in my back yard: Eclipta prostrata. I saw your substitution post from a few years back (great idea!) and I saw where it didn't grow in your region. I am in coastal NC and I bet you could grow some. It grows wild here, actually in great abundance in the ditches, which I don't use because of the herbicides the electric company uses :-( But now I have some growing out back. If you would like a couple of seed heads, let me know at email@example.com and I'll be happy to get some off to you. Blessings to you, Anna
All your videos are so beautiful, too.
