Keckiella ternata flowerBlue-stemmed Keckiellia

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

I have seen one colony blooming on the back side of Cold Spring trail (just below the horse trough about 1/2 mile from Camino Cielo) during the 2014 drought. It bloomed from late June to early July. But I don’t know how long it would bloom in normal circumstances.
