Umbellularia californica

Wildflowers Dicots Laurales Lauraceae Umbellularia

California bay laurel.

Small trees that line our streams, present on all trails. Occasionally found away from water.

Blooms December to March.

Green fruit appears in about July, but doesn’t ripen until late September when the fruits drop on the ground. Still dropping in November.
