Castilleja applegatei flowersWavy-leaved Indian Paintbrush.

I have not seen this in Santa Barbara county, though it is supposed to grow here. I have seen it in Ventura county, on Hwy 33 north of Ojai and on Lockwood Valley Rd. Seen blooming in mid-June.

Formerly this genus was placed in the Scrophulariaceae (figwort) family.
