Diplacus calycinus, Kaweah River bush Monkey Flower, is a little startling to see; a lovely butter-yellow-flowered monkey flower in full sun amongst the cacti and saltbush or sticking out of what appears to be solid rock. We saw it in the Pinyon-Juniper Woodland, Joshua Tree Woodland, in full Creosote Woodland amongst the barrel cacti and along canyon walls in Kern Canyon, West of Ridgecrest and below Three Rivers.
This monkey flower will perform fine in the desert if given some summer water. I find it fascinating that the coastal form, Diplacus longiflorus var. longiflorus, is MUCH more cold tolerant, more drought tolerant, and more heat tolerant. Diplacus calycinus is garden tolerant, deer tolerant and makes a great flower show. Commonly found in rock crevices or under boulders.
Diplacus calycinus's foliage color is green and type is stressdeciduous.
Diplacus calycinus's flower color is yellow.
Communities for Diplacus calycinus:Chaparral, Joshua Tree Woodland, Yellow Pine Forest and Central Oak Woodland.
