Over the last few weeks I’ve been able to visit a few diverse local micro-climates and explore them for flowers.
Pescadero State Beach (Pescadero, CA)
• Pescadero offers extensive dunes with a variety of flora and a large marshland with trails.
Mercey Hot Springs (Firebaugh, CA)
• Mercey is inland, arid and home to a different collection of flowers.
• Gualala is a small town north of San Francisco on the coast about 140 miles from Santa Cruz.
Kruse Rhododendron State Preserve (Cazadero, CA)
• Just south of Gualala, Kruse is in the redwood forest and home to many unique flowers.
