Diamond-petaled California poppy

In one location at Site 300, the 7,000 acre experimental test facility operated by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, the diamond-petaled California poppy (Eschscholzia rhombipetala) is found growing with another rare plant, the round-leaved filaree (California macrophylla). The round-leaved filaree is shown in the foreground (roundish or kidney shaped leaves). The diamond-petaled California poppy is in the background of the photograph (yellow flower). Some historic observations also report these two rare plants growing in the same location. Photo by Don Johnston/LLNL
