Specimen available

Base of magnolia within spray zone of sprinklers. On northwest corner of Bellfontaine and Fairmont. It is abundant in the mountains, but only the third place I’ve seen it in urban Pasadena.

Pretty pathetic, huh?


That’s it in the lower left — very young and small, but sufficient to positively ID.
