We've seen this Monardella flower growing on several trails in Lassen Volcanic National Park. It took me a while to identify it because the blooms are usually purple and not white like the ones we've been seeing.
Figuring out the names of wildflowers has been an even bigger challenge than I thought it would be! There are so many variations in colors that sometimes it takes an amateur like me hours to match up a name to a face. But that feeling when you finally get it right makes it all worth it!
