Along the West County trail between Graton and Ross Station Road.
Pretty common along the trail between Graton and Ross Station Road. Appears weedy; growing along the disturbed ground. Bright pink five-petaled flowers at the end of long stalks. Unique seedpods shown in first photo.
Appears escaped from gardens along the West County portion of the trail. Grows low to the ground from a rosette that looks like dandelion with similar toothed leaves.
Non-native ornamental planted all along the trail outside of Sebastopol. I wonder what they are; I see them in Hacienda too.
I remember reading that these are non-native, bigger and somewhat aggressive in that they out-compete the native gray squirrel.
