Description

A group of 4 Malacothamnus, Davidsonii on the old fire road along the west side of Mendenhall Peak.

These individuals are part of a huge population of Malacothamnus Davidsonii on the top 0'-250' from the ridgeline of Mendenhall Peak, with 1000 or more individual Malacothamnus, many are Davidsonii.

There are too many to ID all of them for one person. I will be posting more locations along this peak with more photos.

This group needs more study.
