Flowers Seem More Exotic in Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract

The wild geraniums in the Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract have larger leaves and vibrant lilac hued flowers with larger petals than the wild geraniums on Corralitas Drive and the Corralitas Red Car Property (see photo below). They tend to thrive on the lower slope right down to the sidewalk on Allesandro. This one was just below the Landacre Cabin, below the closed-off portion of El Moran St.

If you can help identify these or any other plant we highlight here, please send email to:

This month, we're taking a close-up view of the natural beauty of our neighborhood. All Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract photographs published on the Corralitas Red Car Property Blog in March 2009, are of plants growing on the 3 large lots destined for destruction, if a developer gains final approval of his proposed subdivision.

Neighbors will be back in front of City Council's PLUM Committee on March 24, 2009.
