White Fiesta Flower, Pholistoma membranaceum

Height: 2-35 inches
Description: Pholistoma membranaceum is an annual herb with a waxy, fleshy, bristly stem and branching profusely, sometimes forming a tangle. The inflorescence bears 2 to 10 flowers each under a centimeter wide. The flower is white, usually with a purple spot or streak on each of its five lobes.
Leaf: The leaves are deeply lobed or cut and borne on winged stalks. The foliage is coated in hairs. White Fiesta Flower, Pholistoma membranaceum, is a member of the finely bristled Borage family. Its another one of the many annuals that star here during the super-blooms, though this one is a side player where it can sometimes romp up into larger shrubby neighbors. Annuals are highly responsive to and dependent upon adequate winter and spring rains.
