Chaparral (Elfin Forest) - Wildflowers 1Downloadable Video - 2015
Chaparral, the name conjures visions of the old west, but actually the Chaparral landscape makes up a good part of the California countryside. Called by some an "Elfin Forest," it consists of oak, sage and scrub; it's also the home of many species of gorgeous wildflowers. Host Martin Haleguides us on our Chaparral visit, which begins in the Santa Ana, Elsinore and the Santa Margarita Mountain Range, which extends down part of the coast of Southern California, and includes the San Mateo Canyon Wilderness Area. Flora observed include: Skullcap; Red Maids; Purple Nightshade; Star Lily; Hog Potato; Virgin's Bower; Yerba De Chivato (Herb Of The Kid Goat); Engelmann Oak; Thread-Leaved Brodiaea; Dwarf Checker Bloom; Tomcat Clover; Pacific Pea; Sharp-Toothed Black Snakeroot; Shooting Stars; Melilotus Indica; California Buckwheat; California Buttercup; Johnny-Jump-Up; Suncup; Chocolate Lily; Sticky Monkey-Flower.
