We learn so much from photos in the wild, Claire.  Thank you so much!

So many good subjects!  Love them all!

Wonderful pictures, Claire.  I'd love to see Lewisia tweedyi in the wild.  There seems to be a lot of variation.  I can't keep up with the name changes either.

Many of us have no intention of keeping up with these infernal name changes ... wonderful images, Claire - many thanks for posting.

Just one more plant -- a fairly rare endemic, Valeriana columbiana.

Very nice Claire! I love them all! I wouldn't mind replacing the weed Valeriana sambucifolia I have in my garden with V columbiana!

This has to be the most beautiful of teucriums in flower - T. aroanum.

Agreed, Tim.  Pretty spectacular close up. 

What size are we talking about here - leaves and flowers?

Only a couple of inches high Rick, but the plant spreads over about two feet in deep sand.
