Red Car Property: Blue Fiesta Flowers Back For A Limited Time

Photo: Diane Edwardson, April 1, 2010. One-inch diameter, native Blue Fiesta Flowers just started blooming near Adelbert. (Click on photo to enlarge.)

While Blue Fiesta Flowers (Pholistoma auritum) bloom in March in the Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract, they appear the first week of April on the northern end of the Red Car Property, on the shady slope adjacent to Adelbert. In fact, they are blooming just below the giant bushes of Purple Nightshade, another native plant.
