Rosy-petalled Cliffbush Jamesia americana var. rosea

Description

rosy cliffbush, Jamesia americana var. rosea, California, White Mountains, Cottonwood Basin, Granite Meadow, Fishlake Valley drainage, elevation 3025 m (9925 ft).

This Hydrangea Family member is always a favorite shrub to find, and as the common name suggests, cracks in cliffs are about the only places you will find it, especially in the more arid parts of its range. This one required a little climbing to reach for photography.

Jamesia americana as a whole ranges through the central and southern Rocky Mountains into northern Mexico, and westward to eastern California and southeastern Arizona. The var. rosea seen here is more restricted, extending from the southern Sierra Nevada eastward into the isolated desert mountain ranges of east-central California and southern Nevada. Here in the White Mountains it is found exclusively in crevices of massive granite outcrops at subalpine elevations.
