Note that in the tables below the order of the plants has changed from the 1999 and later tables, and the tables have been transposed.
|Sweet Pea||Wild Cucumber
T. Chester was a bit negligent about writing up his hikes since in the last half of 1997, so the 1997 table is incomplete after that date. However, only a few plants bloom after that date.
|Month||Ca. Poppy||Lupine||Ceanothus||Sp. Broom||Dodder||Deerweed||Monkey Flower|
"Full bloom" means the majority of the plants are in full bloom.
"Beginning" means that some plants are blooming somewhere.
"Ending" means that the majority of plants have finished blooming, although some plants in some locations may still be in full bloom.
"Gone" means we haven't seen any in bloom anywhere.
The nicknames for dodder and cucumber were found by Jane Strong in an unremembered reference.
