  • date of photo  Jun 12, 2014
  • location   Along the South Coast Ridge Road, Santa Lucia Mountains, Los Padres National Forest (Monterey County, California, US)
  • family Polygonaceae
  • notes   Another view showing glandular stems, bracts, involucres, and perianths. Plants were growing in pure serpentine gravel by the roadside.

    I was delighted to find this wonderful plant while looking out the window as I drove slowly through a section of obvious serpentine along the South Coast Ridge Rd in Big Sur. Later, when perusing CalPhotos posts, I recognized that the location here is exactly the same as shown in Chris Winchell's post here. It's also the location of this observation record by Brian & Eileen Keelan.
