  • date of photo  Apr 1, 2013
  • location   Arroyo Del Puerto (Stanislaus County, California, US)
  • family Liliaceae
  • notes   Habitiat shot, showing steep, serpentine talus slope where these fritillaries grow. This was a relatively dense cluster for the locale.

    Almost all the plants I observed had just one flower or bud, only a few had two. I don't know whether this was result of seeing the plants early in their flowering period; or of climatic factors of the particular year and/or locale; or of the particular population. Other posts show individual plants with 3 or more flowers and/or buds.
