    Reviewer's comments:
         "The inland race of H. linearis is usually plain white (vs the rare bicolored coastal var. pulchellum), but this pale yellow version (of var. linearis) is new to me. Was it alone among white-flowered plants, or typical of the population? It is quite different from the occasional bright-yellow variant of var. pulchellum in the Zayante Sandhills (qv)."

    Reviewer's comments:
         "I looked back at my photos for this day and have a blurry one that shows a patch of all this color. I probably would have taken photos of any other colors if I saw them. One thing that can be seen in some of these photos is that there is a small patch of darker yellow at the base of the petals similar to photo 0000 0000 0105 0169."
