AKA: Moth Plant, White Bladderflower, Common Moth Vine and Cruel Vine

The large seed capsules of this trailing vine resemble a milkweed (Asclepias) such as eriocarpa. Growing flat on the ground among stands of Asclepias fascicularis in a somewhat seculeded field.

Description

There is quite a lot of Asclepias fascicularis in this secluded vacant land located east of Storke Road and south of Hollister Avenue south of the railroad tracks. While it appeared a bit water stressed due to the current drought conditions, flowers and seed capsules were abundant. The photograph only shows a portion of one small patch, but there is quite a lot more in this general area.

Description

This stand of A. eriocarpa is located on the west side of Foxen Canyon Road. Access through the barbed wire fence under the oak tree.

These plants (~50) were in glorious full bloom, a couple of which had maturing, yellowish seed capsules.

Although some plants were shedding blooms, most were in very vigorous condition despite the current drought. No monarch butterfly ova, larva, nor pupa observed, as well as none in flight nor any chewed leaves.
