Calochortus clavatus (Yellow mariposa lily) Trichostema lanatum (Woolly blue curls) Castilleja affinis (Indian paintbrush)

 

Wants List


These are species of plants I would like to find in order to photograph.  If anyone knows of a location for any of them, I would appreciate knowing about it, with as
much specific information as possible. I should say that anything farther from the Southern California area than the White Mts is probably out of my range from a practical standpoint. Please contact me at: mmlcharters[at]calflora.net.
