Several months ago I asked this group about the growth cycle of
Hesperocallis undulata.  Well...I got my answer during a visit to
Anza-Borrego State Natural Area (Park) in late September.  I was talking to
a volunteer at the visitors center, and he said that the plants were just
coming up, in response to the heavy rains the park had experienced
recently.  He noted that the plants grow through the winter and usually
start flowering in February.  (He also said they were one of his favorite
flowers.)  I never got to the area where the plants were; otherwise I might
have taken some pictures.
