One-leaf onion (Allium unifolium) mingles with
California poppy (Eschscholzia californica) in front of
trailing coyote brush (Baccharis pilularis ‘Pigeon Point’)

Prettyface (Triteleia ixioides) comes in colors
ranging from cream to yellow and combines
well with blue-flowering shrubs like ceanothus


California brodiaea (Brodiaea californica)
sports large, showy flowers in late spring

The blue flowers of Ithuriel’s Spear (Triteleia laxa)
are accentuated by the pink blossoms of
checkerbloom (Sidalcea malvaeflora)
