It is actually spelled "hierbabuena" and it means "mint" as in "peppermint."

Usually, if the dictionary doesn't give you an answer and the word has a b or v in it, try to switch the b with a v or vice versa. The sounds are so similar that either letter makes sense a lot of times. Also, our dictionary predicts what you are typing, so if you start typing "hier..." you will see "hierbabuena" in the list of possible entries.

Carlos has the right spelling as well, but in that case, it is two separate words.

And the antonym for Yerba Buena is Mala Yerba (Weed).
