The Minarets from Lake Ediza with mountain hemlock (Tsuga mertensiana), whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis), Sierra gray willow (Salix orestera), dwarf bilberry (Vaccinium cespitosum) and sledges (Carex spp.). Vegetation is the fabric of ecosystems! Join CNPS for a Rare Plant Treasure Hunt in the Sierras-- go to cnps.org/cnps/rareplants/treasurehunt/ for more info.

It's time to start planning for fall sowing. Treat yourself to a packet of wildflowers native to your region.

I've been busy the past two days researching and visiting printers in downtown LA. I've found some good options for printing larger runs on 100% PCW recycled paper, woo hoo! Also have the organic totebags in the works. But the thing I'm most excited about what happened at the silkscreen studio. So excited but keeping it a secret for now! In the meantime enjoy some black sage at sunset.

California buckwheat, or Eriogonum fasciculatum, blooming on the nursery grounds. This prolific summer bloomer is a great addition to any pollinator garden! #californianativeplants

Growing one of our favorites, Lemonade berry! #plantnativeplants #grownativeplants #californianativeplants

Sign of Summer: Elderberries. The color of the pale dusty blue berries is so calming to me. Does anyone have a good recipe for making a medicinal syrup from these? Would love to try it. #elderberry #sambucus #californianativeplants

Asclepias cordifolia on the east flank of Fiddler Mountain, Josephine Co, OR last weekend with @arcto_mountain and @_andesite #oregonnativeplants #californianativeplants #cistusnurserywanderings #milkweed #coolplants

Must be my lucky day πŸ€ Not a clover, this is actually a California native FERN! Who knew? It's called Marsilea vestita! 😊__________________________________________________________________________________ #marsileavestita #marsilea #californianatives #californianativefern #californianativeplants #californianativeplant #cosumnesriverpreserve #natureisbeautiful #ilovenature #ferns #iloveferns #iloveplants #iloveyou #conservation #restoration #fieldwork #naturelovers #naturegram #ignature #instanaturelover

Late afternoon stroll through the Voorhis. Sun was going down behind the hills and I started freaking out about predators so I snapped this vinegarweed and ran! Vinegarweed is known to be allelopathic; its volatile foliage oils are phytotoxic.

How fun is this!!...tickle tickle!..

Twinberry (Lonicera involucrata) #californianativeplants

Cutting off the top of this desert barrel cactus willl not give you drinkable water!
The desert barrel cactus, or California barrel cactus, Ferocactus cylindraceus, in bud in Borrego Springs, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.
It may bloom from February to June, or even in late summer in areas of summer rain, like southeastern California and parts of Nevada, this is especially true in some areas within the Sonoran desert.
A plant could flower for 3 or 4 months, but the major blooming would be shorter.

A sugary nectar is produced on the upper part of the areoles, as you may also find it in other Ferocacti, as well as some other cactus genera like Ancistricactus/Glandulicactus, Sclerocactus and a few others.
This nectar is favored by ants, protecting the plant against herbivore insects.
Some animals are grazing on this species if the opportunity arrives, I have seen plants in the eastern Mojave, where rodents have eaten away spine by spine in a circle around its apex, to reach its fruits. Certain animals may eat parts of its stem too, if they can reach it.
Often leaning towards the sun to the south, it is often found on well drained cliffy slopes, as well as flatter areas, as long as the drainage is good.
Its range goes from southwestern Utah through southern Nevada, throughout southeastern California into Arizona and northwestern Mexico. ~

Me when people act surprised volunteers spend hours removing invasive plants "Well they could stare at a wall in the gym. Or they could stare at this.….."

I've been busy the past two days researching and visiting printers in downtown LA. I've found some good options for printing larger runs on 100% PCW recycled paper, woo hoo! Also have the organic totebags in the works. But the thing I'm most excited about what happened at the silkscreen studio. So excited but keeping it a secret for now! In the meantime enjoy some black sage at sunset.

First plant is in the ground at NCOS!
If you're interested in volunteering to help plant California natives on our now barren NCOS restoration site, you're in luck - our second Saturday planting days will start on September 9th from 9:30 to noon. You'll need to bring water and wear hats and good shoes! Volunteers will receive a T-shirt! If interested, please RSVP to ncos@ccber.ucsb.edu.
