This is a follow-up to two iNat observations by Don Rideout, both of which were taken from a different angle from slightly farther up the trail:

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/130455993

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/32859336

Although we couldn't find any cones at all from this tree, almost surely due to the very steep slope on which it is growing, this is a solid Jeffreyi from the following:

  • the color of the needles is dull blue-gray-green; see pix 3, 4 and 5.
  • the color of the inside of a fresh bark chip is red-brown; see pix 1 and 2.
  • the crevice odor is that of vanilla.

Can anyone confirm this? Petals don't seem as splayed as they're supposed to be in C. crocea, but that seems like a variable feature. CalFlora definitely shows records from San Simeon State Park. Height was perhaps 15-30 cm off the ground.

Description

Our botanist/BLM guide for the day, Bruce Delgado, said this was native, endemic Subspecies Horkelia cuneata sericea "sericea is the uncommon one so I wanted you and others to see it and be aware cuz its a cool version of the more common ssp. cuneata." Our specimen appeared to have hairs appressed/ascending (not spreading), and glands obscure/absent. Flowers not observed.

Both ssp. are listed in Jepson eFlora for CCo and grow on old dunes and coastal sand hills.
H.c.cuneata: "Hairs +- dense, glandular and nonglandular, +- spreading." https://ucjeps.berkeley.edu/eflora/eflora_display.php?tid=81860.
Horkelia cuneata var. sericea. A.k.a. Kellogg's Horkelia. "Hairs dense, +- nonglandular, ascending to appressed." https://ucjeps.berkeley.edu/eflora/eflora_display.php?tid=81861.


Wedge Leaf Horkelia (Horkelia cuneata) Native, perennial plant in the Rose (Rosaceae) family. Leaves are pinnate with 5–12 leaflets per side, rounded teeth, and the terminal leaflet has a wedge-shaped base. Flowers are similar to other horkelias, except that the petals are usually narrower, so more of the sepals are visible between the petals. The white petals have a narrow base and are equal to, or exceed the sepals in length. Peak bloom time: April-June.

"This taxon is so common on Fort Ord that it is hard to believe it is a CA endemic"
Flora of Fort Ord, D. Styer, 2019, p. 188.
