Somehow I forgot to include WOOLY BLUECURLS (Trichostema lanatum) in my last post. A few nice stands of this low, rounded shrub were in bloom on Gloria Road. I just love long, hairy spikes of these erect inch-long blue flowers. The stamens can be up to two inches long.This chaparral plant can be found below 3500' from the Monterey area, south to Baja California.
