Blooming Jojoba

Photo by Peggy Wenrick 1/23/12
Peggy caught some blooming Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis). This plant is dioecious; separate male and female plants. Both sexes produce these small, greenish-yellow flowers, though, so it's unclear which sex this one is. Female plants (of course) will produce the acorn-like green fruits that turn brown. Let's keep watch! More info on Jojoba here

Update on liverworts: Fred found them on the Bluff trail. They are very tiny, though. (The photo shows about one square inch of space.) Look in the shady areas where you see the spike mosses (Resurrection plants).
