I want to preface this post with the fact that I am not a plant expert! Well I may know a lot more about herbs, there are a LOT of native plant species I am still not aware of. I am still learning. Its been an amazing learning process doing this native plant series. I am so happy to be able to identify plants on my hikes, and sage picking trips! There are still 2 species I don't know, so if anyone in California can point me in the right direction feel free to comment below!
CALANDRINIA MENZIESII (RED MAIDS)
ACMISPON GLAZER (DEERWEED)
DIPLACUS PUNICEUS (RED MONKEY FLOWER)
Sambucus nigra ssp (American black elderberry)
GNAPHALIUM CALIFORNICUM (CA EVERLASTING)
