This is another fire annual in my little series (see these posts).
From what I read about this one, it grows in "disturbed earth."
I imagined giant bulldozers and earth movers creating housing pads for sub-divisions .... a common sight in Southern California ..... they do more than "disturb" the earth ..... but maybe this miraculous plant is one that would erupt out of such a horrid place in the spring after the winter rains.
These wildflowers are truly miraculous.
Growing in fire scar areas and disturbed earth.
You go girl.
