Check out this cute & uncommon little California “Monkey Flower”! It’s found only in the southernmost Sierra Nevada foothills alongside the Tehachapi Mountains, growing in woodlands & open rocky areas. Adorable five-lobed flowers with intricately veined with maroon markings bloom mid-Spring through mid-Summer. To 6” tall & 9” wide. Super easy to grow in sun! Reseeds!

~Verdolaga Bicolor / two-colored Portulaca. Cut a stem, plant in potting soil and it will re-root. From one basket, you can make three or four in a three week period. It makes a great hanging basket.
