Pholistoma auritum - Fiesta Flower

Pholistoma auritum often completely covers whole slopes in high shade or North exposures. The Fiesta Flower blooms much of the Spring, so long as the soil moisture holds. Pholistoma auritum lays on the ground or clambers over its neighbors, growing to a foot tall and maybe as wide. Seeded plants are usually entertwined. Fiesta Flower can turn a whole embankment blue purple with its showy flowers.
