White Plectritis

Growing in seasonally moist areas of Western United States and Western Canada, white plectritis (Plectritis macrocera) is a native annual. The opposite leaves lower on the stem are ovate with a short petiole (stalk) while those leaves higher on the stem are elliptical and sessile (no stalk). The white flowers are arranged in an inflorescence at the end of the stem. These white plectritis, also commonly called longhorn plectritis, were found along the Pacific Crest Trail near the Crystal Lake Fish Hatchery, Shasta County CA.
