Plant of the day: coastal tidy tips

Layia_platyglossaCoastal tidy tips (Layia platyglossa) are eye-catching, with their buttery yellow centers and white petal tips. But keep a sharp eye out because there are two other and very similar looking species in Marin. You can tell this one apart because the plant is glandular, has fragrance, and the hairs on the stems rise out of dark spots.

These ones were seen blooming on the bluffs of Steep RavineLayia_platyglossa-2
