Nama lobbii is a species of flowering plant in the borage family known by the common names Lobb's fiddleleaf and Woolly nama. It is native to the Sierra Nevada and southern Cascade Range chain in California and adjacent sections of Nevada and Oregon. It grows in high mountain habitat in dry areas on slopes and ridges.

Nama lobbii' is a rhizomatous perennial herb forming dense mats of glandular hairy to woolly herbage usually spreading more than a metre wide. The sticky, hairy oval leaves are up to six centimetres long, occurring alternately along the branching stems and in clusters at stem forks. The funnel-shaped flowers are just under a centimetre wide with five rounded lobes. They are deep pink to purple in color. The plant sends out wide root networks which can grow up to five meters in length per year and sprout new plants.[1]

Uses

The plant Nama lobbii' has been recommended for use as groundcover in revegetation projects in its native mountain ranges.[1]
