From Romneya on Tuesday 25th of January 2022 04:37:26 PM PST
Romneya coulteri Harv., the more common of both species, is a impressive solitary perennial with big white flowers, reaching 15-20 cm across. It grows in dry canyons in chaparral and coastal sage scrub plant communities, sometimes in areas recently burned. Despite being a Californian native, the seemingly ephemeral flowers cope well with summer rain in Martin Bohnet's German garden, where they flower in mid summer.

From Cynoglossum on Saturday 22nd of January 2022 04:03:02 PM PST
Cynoglossum grande, or Pacific Hound's Tongue is a non-invasive herbaceous perennial native to woodland habitats from British Columbia south to California. It begins its vegetative cycle in late Winter, sending up hairy leaves which unfold somewhat like hairy rainbow chard, before sending up a flowering stalk to two feet. The flowers open magenta and turn vivid blue as they age. Five white appendages surround the base of each flower. It grows from a modified rhizomatous taproot that can produce many rosettes from a single root system. It exhibits a marked summer dormancy, quickly retreating into dormancy when the ground dries up in its native summer dry territory. Pictures below by Travis Owen
