Mt. Diablo Wildflower Report 5/22/11

Mitchell Canyon/Eagle Peak Loop Wildflowers of Mt. Diablo

Submitted by  Tom Hilton

At Mt. Diablo, we did the Mitchell Canyon/Eagle Peak loop, and the flowers were outstanding. Clarkia all over the place; lots of Yerba Santa, Chinese Houses, Ithuriel’s Spear, Wind Poppies, Serrated Onion, and so on. The Chamise is just starting to bloom; Buckeyes are at peak. What I saw in bloom: Allium serra Allium unifolium Calochortus pulchellus (CNPS 1.b.2) Calochortus venustus Castilleja sp. Chorizanthe membranacea Clarkia sp. Clematis sp. Collinsia heterophylla Delphinium nudicaule Delphinium sp. (blue) Dichelostemma sp. Dudleya cymosa Eriodictyon californicum Gilia tricolor Lathyrus vestitus Linanthus bicolor Lotus scoparius Minuartia douglasii Phacelia sp. Ptelea crenulata Sambucus nigra ssp. cerulea Sedum spathulifolium Sisyrinchium bellum Stylomecon heterophylla Triteleia laxa Wyethia sp. Zigadenus fremontii
