The Adelbert end of the Red Car Property continues to produce an interesting variety of wildflowers. These flowers are about 1/4 of an inch and vary from almost white to pale pink with red veins. The plant is a low, ground cover type, from 4 to 6 inches tall. It grows along the edge of the path and at the top of the Viaduct Footings.

*UPDATE, March 12, 2010: Calflora indicates this is Spanish Lotus also known as Spanish Clover (Lotus purshianus var. purshianus), a native plant.
