The Fremont Pincushion (Chaenactis Fremontii) grows in large clumps. It's reminiscent of a lawn in parts:This is the Brown-Eyed Primrose (Cammisonia Claviformis) and can be yellow or white, though we seem to only grow the white ones:In fact, most of the flowers that we get are of the yellow or white variety. Other than the aforementioned Lupine - which is brand new to us this year - this Sand Verbena (Abronia Villosa) is the only purple flower we see:We aren't exactly sure what genus and species of the Boraginaceae family this plant belongs to but it is one of the cutest little plants: Our greatest crop is the Desert Dandelion (Malcothrix Glabrata) but we think there are some Desert Marigold (Baileya Multiradiata) mixed in with them:There is a lot of this African Mustard (Malcomia Africana) around:A LOT of it. When the pod dries up and the seeds fall out they look like this:They're pretty small and an interesting color. We aren't sure if we want to spend the effort to create homemade african mustard this year or not.
This is me knowing something cool.
