Lasthenia glabrata

Goldfields and California goldfields.

We currently do not grow this plant.

A small little early spring annual that is a pioneer species in many bad habitats. In the San Joaquin Valley it makes mass displays of bright yellow in areas that are still intact. It will grow in any soil. I've seen it in gravel or alkali clay. It needs full sun. Its rainfall needed to flower is about 5 inches. Since the plants are only alive for a few months in late winter and early spring that is a enough to allow them to set seed.
Unfortunately this genera is plastic and difficult to really separate. Many species names have been applied and it is confusing.
Syn. Lasthenia californica.
