Santa Monica Mountains Wildflowers 3/2/20

Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area has a new report

Stunt High Trail 3/2/20
         We haven’t had much rain in the past two months but there are still flowers coming. This trail begins along a creek and in this riparian area there are milkmaids in bloom as well as wild cucumber, purple nightshade, California bay trees and miner’s lettuce. Coming up into the meadow there are a few blue dicks and some vetch. In the chaparral there are greenback ceanothus, California everlasting, Eastwood Manzanita, fuchsia flowering gooseberry and flowering ash trees. I was most excited to see a blooming wild peony.
