Pink and lavender

The only two plants in the Plumbaginaceae (Leadwort) Family on Bodega Head.

The first is found along coastal bluffs and is flowering now.  The second grows in the salt marsh and blooms during the summer.  Look for their similar 5-petaled flowers.

Sea Thrift or Sea Pink (Armeria maritima)

 Sea Lavender or Marsh Rosemary (Limonium californicum)
