Can't resist yet another post of this species: a feast for the eyes at any stage. Of course I know it's not supposed to be here....

Anomalously, one was brave enough to hazard blooming in december.

6-12 inch specimens growing on stumps of oak or perhaps bay laurel.

I like this ID for these, although they have disappointed me in lacking bioluminescence.

Usually doesn't seem much of a nectaring plant; I think fritillaries gather here because of a trellis of passion vine about 10 feet away.

I suspect that this was picked up with a load of Marigolds from west Petaluma.

I didn't get it in my pictures, but the color has a dusting of purple over the dark sienna background.
