Dwarf Checkermallow (Sidalcea malviflora) A.k.a. Checker Bloom or Checker Mallow. Native, perennial, hairy plant in the Mallow and Hibiscus (Malvaceae) family that is commonly found in open meadows and grasslands, and has an affinity for serpentine soils. It is a common plant, though variable in appearance. There are several subspecies. Stems and buds are generally hairy. Inflorescence is dense to open; lowest bracts often leaf-like, generally divided to base; bractlets 0. Flowers have 5 pink petals with prominent veins, squared off at tip. Peak bloom time: February-May. Indigenous people may have used the leaves as salad greens. 2 traditional uses are described here:

Descripción

Pacific Trillium (Trillium ovatum) Native plant growing in a semi-shaded woods near the coast.
This unique wildflower emerges in spring, its distinctive 3-petaled white infloresence brightening the deep shade and dark colors of the moist forest floor. The white petals can fade to pink or even red as they age. Single flowers bloom on a short peduncle, rather than being sessile as in other trilliums, and are framed by three sepals and three broad leaves resulting in a pleasingly balanced composition. The pedicel (flower stalk) is diagnostic. Trillium ovatum has one but T. albidum does not. It grows slowly, spreading from rhizomes and does best in moist acidic soils with high organic matter and dappled sun to full shade. Banana slugs love it. Peak bloom time: Feb-April.

"Plant Height: 0.6–2.5 m. Habitat: Grassy, open or disturbed areas. This is a beautiful, common flower of mid- to late-summer. The plant has a pungent odor and, like other tarweeds, is sticky to the touch. It is extremely variable, having between 5 and 21 ray flowers. The ray flowers tend to be pure yellow earlier in the year, but develop a maroon base later in the season. The flowers are at their best in the morning, often withering or closing during the afternoon."

Acmispon is a genus of plants in the Pea (Fabaceae) family. Clovers and Lupines are also in this family. Flowers are 5-petaled consisting of a wide upper banner petal, two wing petals, and two lower petals that are fused to form a boat-shaped keel. The seed pod is a long, flattened pod that splits lengthwise along both top and bottom to disperse the seeds inside.

This clover feels super soft, almost furry.

Rabbitfoot Clover (Trifolium arvense) Introduced/naturalized clover without involucre, that grows in disturbed soils. It has ciliated stems and leaves. It is similar-looking to Narrow-leaved Clover (Trifolium angustifolium), but inflorescence is smaller, 1–3 cm, ovate to short-cylindric, and very soft to the touch. Stems are erect to ascending. Soft inflorescence appears pale pink to white with thin, red lines. Peak bloom time: June.

Trifolium (Clover) are in the Fabaceae (Pea) family. Trifolium has 3 leaflets per leaf and dense heads of small flowers. Clover are divided into 2 groups: those WITHOUT involucre and those WITH involucre (bracts at the base of the head which are fused to form a cup, bowl or wheel under the flower head.
"The pea family has 5-petaled flowers, consisting of a wide upper banner petal, two wing petals, plus two lower petals which are fused to form a boat-shaped keel. Many produce heads or spikes, consisting of multiple individual flowers (examples are lupines and clovers). The seed pod is generally a “legume, ” which is a long, flattish pod, swollen by the seeds, and splitting lengthwise along both the top and bottom."

Wedge Leaf Horkelia (Horkelia cuneata) Native/endemic, sparsely hairy, perennial plant in the Rose (Rosaceae) family that grows in grassland and woods near coast. Leaves are pinnate with 5–12 leaflets per side. Leaflets have rounded teeth. Flowers are similar to other horkelias, except that the creamy white petals are usually narrower, so more of the sepals are visible between the petals. The petals have a narrow base and are equal to, or exceed the sepals in length. Peak bloom time: April-July.

"This taxon is so common on Fort Ord that it is hard to believe it is a CA endemic"

California Horkelia (Horkelia californica) Native, perennial, long-hairy, uncommon on Fort Ord (compared to the prolific Horkelia cuneata). Sepals are significantly red tinged. 5 white petals are more rounded and shorter with a wide base (unlike H. cuneata where base of petal is narrower than terminal end). Peak bloom time: April-June. There are two subspecies: var. californica and var. frondosa.

This Clarkia was being windblown, to the left :-)

Lewis' Clarkia (Clarkia lewisii) Native/endemic, annual, erect plant in the Evening Primrose (Onagraceae) family that grows < 5 dm (less than 20inches) tall in coastal scrub, woodland, and maritime chaparral habitat. It is found only in Monterey and San Benito Counties. Nodding buds are characteristic. Outer anthers are lavender and longer than white, speckled inner anthers. Long, white stigma is exerted beyond anthers and has a "+" at the tip. Sepals stay fused in 4's. Ring of hairs visible at rim, when looking down into flower (whereas in Clarkia cylindrica, ring of hairs is below the rim). Petals can be lavender or pink. Base of petals sometimes have tiny, dark pink speckles. The entire base of the petals is occasionally deep crimson, similar to Ruby Chalice Clarkia (Clarkia rubicunda), but the plant can be distinguished by its nodding buds, and the two different forms of its anthers. Peak bloom time: May-July. Conservation Status: Vulnerable (N3) in United States (NatureServe).
