Owl's clover, Castilleja exserta blooming @mareislandpreserve. This CA native is great food for Checkerspot butterflies. It is hemi-parasitic so it does some photosynthesis, but gets by with a little help from its friends. Common statewide in grassy habitats under 5000 ft elevation. Seeds are available for gardens, but this critter needs full summer dryness. #californianativeplants #spring #california #bloom #mareislandshorelineheritagepreserve #vallejo #igetbywithalittlehelpfrommyfriends
