Red Car Property: Wildflowers Continue Blooming Near Adelbert

A variety of wildflowers are coming into bloom between the Adelbert cut-through to the Red Car Property and the Viaduct Footings. Native wildflowers, grasses and trees are repopulating this particular slope after the City repaired it in 2007 (following the slope failure during 2005 rainstorms).

If you can help identify any plant, animal or bug we highlight, please contact us:

UPDATE: Thanks to Michael O'Brien for helping us identify this native plant as Common Goldenstar (Bloomeria crocea).
