This is a colorful bush with red and white flowers.
This Oak tree was full of Oak-balls.
This tree is just full of these 4 petals flowers. They look to be about 2-1/2" across.
This may be a non-native but it looks to be establish.
One whole edge of the meadow is blooming with cream cups and has been for weeks.
This is a native form of dandelion. Much larger/taller stalk with a tight clustered seed head. It was growing alone - not in a huge group as dandelions tend to do.
The botanist we were with called this deer brush, but the other 'deer brush' ID'd from the area isn't a match. I made a note Elephibasi / elefebasi before we walked away but without the spelling I can't find the ID.
I want to make sure this is the correct ID since there is a distinctive pink spot on each leaf which doesn't show on the other photos of rose clover...
Non-native 'hardy' grass.
Tiny obviously mustard flowers on a trail through a mostly shaded oak woodland. The older plant had a singular tall stalk with flowers on it. The smaller plant photo shows the foliage better.
This was introduced as 'sock destroyer' - it could also be California Hedge Parsley?
It's a sad thing to see evidence of this disease...well, everywhere. Even at a thousands of acres preserve dedicated to science. This bay tree shows obvious signs of being a carrier, with the pathogen frying the tips of certain leaves. Good news, the only good news, is that drought seems to slow the spread somewhat as there is less water to spread the pathogen from plant to plant....
Sticky Monkey Flower or Bandaid plant.
New growth. Unknown if this is a male or female plant.
