Coordinates 34.21378, -118.16775
LOCATION CLOSEUP
Elevation 477 meters
Location ~10 plants were adjacent to the paved "driveway" of the microwave tower/station on the lower Brown Mtn. Fire Road. Another 15 plants were adjacent to the "Fern Truck Trail" (aka lower Brown Mtn. Road) ~50 feet NW of the main tower itself.
Notes 9-10 C.plummerae plants mostly nestled within the shelter of individual Chaparral Yucca (Hesperoyucca whipplei) plants, adjacent to the paved "driveway" of the microwave tower/station on the lower Brown Mtn. Fire Road. This particular population was marked by a striking diversity in coloration; see photos. Observation based on a photograph by John L. Thompson. It's also of interest that while I have biked past this spot for over 25 years, this is the first year I have seen C.plummerae in this location.
