Skyline Serpentine Prairie Wildflower Report 4/23/11

Today I went to Skyline Serpentine Prairie which is in Redwood Regional Park in Oakland, CA   It is a restoration and protected area.   Most of the area is protected by fence, but there are some flowers outside the fences, which allow for close-up photography.  The most dominant flowers were Goldfields and California Poppy.    Also in bloom were Blue-eyed Grass,  Cream Cups, Hayfield Tarweed, Purple Sanicle, Yellow Lomatium, Yarrow, a purple pea or vetch (possibly alien),a Plectritis, Owl’s Clover, and Buttercups.  Also seen were the small Presidio Clarkia  (Clarkia franciscana) and a tiny whitish Lewisia.  Both of these were on the downhill side just inside the fenced area.
