Learning Local Plants
I'd love to learn the names and watering needs of plants I encounter on the Monterey Peninsula, Pebble Beach and Carmel... I appreciate your email or comments on the online photo album.
This website here is a work in progress... an experiment in sharing and enjoying.

Ellen: Looks more like a Boston Fern than a Lady Fern (Athyruim).
Beth: Mirror Plant?
Ellen: Common locally, not sure the name.
Ellen: Love its purple ﬂower.
Ellen: Such a humble, lovely ﬂower.
Ellen: Does look more like spearmint than peppermint. In nature we could smell them and easier solve.
Julie: I saw something like this in my yard before and wondered what it was but it didn’t have any scent to help identify. Not 100% sure if this is the same thing though.
Beth: Rose Campion! :)
Beth: Cotyledon - undulata or oblongata?
Ellen: A favorite also comes in white blossoms.
Beth: Poison Oak - but you knew that already. :/
Ellen: Yes I know. It's easier to spot when leaves have some red on them.
Beth: Not sure but maybe a type of Coreopsis?
Beth: Salvia leucantha/Mexican bush sage?
Ellen: Fragrant and ornamental but not the edible herb.
