Pinguicula macroceras subsp. nortensis in N. California

Recommended Posts

Here are some pictures of a typical Pinguicula macroceras subsp. nortensis site Noah and I visited earlier this month in Del Norte Co., California. The first pictures are of nearly vertical walls of serpentine rock with lithophytic Pinguicula. The last few pictures were taken a short distance down the road where the plants grow in seeps in somewhat unstable serpentine gravel. I include the first picture only because it illustrates how water is slowly dripping on and around the plants.

There's also a gorgeous site by a river in Northern California.. I can't recall the name of the river now.. but I know I've heard other people talk about the same spot. Is this the only place you guys saw Pinguicula macroceras subsp. nortensis?

I liked the other site best because there were so many Darlingtonia growing in with the Pinguicula. It's incredible how red Darlingtonia is in full sun.
