Scientific Name

Corethrogyne filaginifolia (Hook. & Arn.) Nutt



Older name

Lessingia filaginifolia (Hook. & Arn.) M. A. Lane


A bushy perennial, which blooms late in the early Summer after many plants are long completed their blooming. 


Found sparingly on dry hillsides. It is often easily spotted as it is one of the few plants in flower. This species was observed blooming in January 2013 (on the hillside just above Malibu Hall, CI). Usually this species disappears with the Winter rains, perhaps because of the dry conditions of 2012-2013 it was able to persist well in the wet season.
