Three odd flowers.

Category: The Wildflowers | Posted: Sat Jul 03, 2010 6:26 pm

The first is Harvest Brodiea whose flowers emerge when the leaves have gone. a coastal plant mainly. The secon is a parasitic plant, orobanche grayana, that is also coastal as it grows near gumweed. The white is ocean spray, a usually large shrub with masses of flowers.

Three unusual and lovely wildflowers. I really like the Harvest Brodiea and the parasitic plant would be welccome in my garden any time. I see why the third plant got its name as it looks alot like the ocean spray it's named after.
