Peavine Ridge Wildflowers 5/22/19

Botanical Wanderings -California reports

Peavine Ridge Road in El Dorado County to look for wildflowers on the lava caps. About 4000 ft elevation. We DID find wildflowers, but they were struggling with the snow! In late May! One spot had masses of one of the prettiest California endemics, Five spot (Nemophila maculata). The problem was, they were too cold to open up. We did find a few that decided to open for us as the sun warmed them up. I don’t recommend going to this spot quite yet.
