Meadow daisy, stickyseed, yellow carpet

Blennospermum nanum var. nanum

This charming low-growing pale yellow wildflower may be mistaken for goldfields, but it has a unique character all its own. It can be one of the first to bloom in early winter and is found only in California, from San Diego to Shasta County.

Growing 8" tall or under, it begins bloom in late February, ending in April. It has a crisp outline to the petals, which are each distinctly separated from each other.

It often seeks out wet or moist places and is found in vernal pools as well. It also grows on serpentine.

This year, 2016, we have limited availability, so one packet per customer.
