Description

mountain rocktansy, Sphaeromeria cana, California, White Mountains, Cottonwood Basin, Granite Meadow, Fishlake Valley drainage, elevation 3025 m (9925 ft).

Another rock outcrop species found with the Jamesia posted earlier, this species is endemic to the Great Basin mountains of Nevada and adjacent southeast Oregon and eastern California, including the southern Sierra Nevada and northern Mojave Desert, up to about 3600 meters (12000 feet) elevation. The species is a calcifuge, liking granite crevices best, but found on other rock types as long as they have no significant carbonate content.

In 1984 I had to backpack to some pretty remote granite outcrops to document this species in the White Mountains for the first time, and thought I had some unnamed sagebrush species until Mary Dedecker set me straight. It has since proven to be fairly frequent in the White Mountains, but is a late-flowering species, and when not in flower it looks exactly like sagebrush from a short distance, so had gone unnoticed here for a century.

The similarity to sagebrush is no accident, as recent DNA studies have shown that the 9 species of Sphaeromeria originated from within Artemisia. For those who want to lump an ever bigger Artemisia, the name Artemisia albicans is available for this species.

Description

Poison Canyon stickseed, Hackelia brevicula, California, White Mountains, Cottonwood Basin, Poison Creek, Fishlake Valley drainage, elevation 2960 m (9710 ft).

This rare species is endemic to the White Mountains, almost entirely in Mono County, California, but getting into the northeast edge of Inyo County, California, and possibly the west edge of Esmeralda County, Nevada. Within this very limited geographic range, it is further confined to a zone mainly of higher montane and subalpine elevations between 2650 and 3150 meters (8700-10300 feet). Within this zone, however, it is locally common in mountain sagebrush, aspen woodland, riparian edges, and other habitats. Quite frankly it's hard to understand how it can be so rare, with its barbed, easily detached seeds that I pick out of my clothing whenever I hike through the area. (Maybe I should stop picking them out? ;-).

The common name, Poison Canyon stickseed, comes from the canyon where this image was taken. The type specimen was collected here (and later named) by Willis Lynn Jepson in 1917.

Description

mountain bitterbrush, Purshia tridentata, unnamed high-elevation variant, White Mountains, elevation 3215 m (10545 ft).

This bitterbrush form is found at higher elevations in (at least) the southwestern portion of the species range, has often been called Purshia glandulosa, and has been a source of confusion between the two species. This form seems to intergrade only with Purshia tridentata, with which it shares flat and relatively thin (though mostly smaller) primary leaves with only narrowly inrolled margins. It gets confused with P. glandulosa because of its tendency toward primary leaves glabrous above with margins often ciliate-glandular, and glands more frequent on the hypanthia and peduncles, as seen clearly on this plant.

Purshia glandulosa, on the other hand, appears to be a completely distinct species centered around the Mojave Desert, and characterized by primary leaves strongly thickened and inrolled most of their width, and with upper leaf surfaces always glabrous and glutinous. It appears to flower later where it grows in proximity to P. tridentata, and intermediates have not been found so far.

Field observations are ongoing to determine whether mountain bitterbrush warrants a formal scientific name as a variety of Purshia tridentata.

The White Mountains representatives of this species seem a little different from populations elsewhere, being uniformly shorter with fewer pairs of leaves, and sometimes being mistaken for Arnica parryi. The best fit appears to be a variant of var. incana, which otherwise occurs in wet places mainly along the Sierra Nevada and Cascade axis, eastward irregularly into the Great Basin. Like so many other species, it reaches its highest elevation limit here in the White Mountains, but also extends well down through the subalpine zone in appropriate habitats.

Description

Staminate and pistillate shrubs are particularly evident this time of year with each catkin type bearing flowers at full anthesis, or nearly so. The glabrous reddish twigs and leaves equally green above and below are diagnostic of Booth's willow. This site lies in the North Bowl of the Bridger Bowl ski area, Gallatin Range, Gallatin County, Montana.

Booth's willow is a native shrub to 5 m tall and common along streams and lakes and generally in wetland areas from low to high elevations in western and south-central Montana. A shrub with a rounded canopy, twigs that are glabrous and yellowish, and leaves equally green on both surfaces are diagnostic of this species. Booth's willow is similar to yellow willow, Salix eriocephala (Salix lutea), except that the leaves are equally green on both surfaces in Booth's willow whereas the leaves are distinctly lighter green (glaucous) on the lower surface of the leaves of yellow willow.
