Seablush


Shortspur Seablush or Rosy Plectritis (Plectritis congesta) 

This native annual wildflower is encountered occasionally on grassy hillsides on Bodega Head.  Most of the small, pinkish flowers are found in dense clusters at the tip of the angular stem.  The leaves are fairly broad, often oblong or elliptic in shape, and may clasp the stem. 

The photograph above is from 24 April 2013, but the one below is from 10 May 2006.


P.S.  Happy May Day!
