Rosa californica

Wildflowers Dicots Eudicots Rosids Rosales Rosaceae Rosa

California wild rose.

Seen blooming on Jesusita and Cold Springs trail in June — down near the creeks in both cases. (In the planted xeroscape at the bottom of the Wilcox there are plants that were blooming in March). The blooms on the trails only lasted about a week (the Wilcox plants were still blooming). Also seen on Blue Canyon about two weeks later. And then in mid-September I saw another bloom on Jesusita.


Thorns!
