Default White Mountains, Inyo and Mono counties

25-28 April 2002, Jepson Herbarium Weekend Workshop, spring flora of the White Mountains, 4500-6000 ft, Inyo and Mono County, California: away from water sources, there were no annuals out, and hardly any shrub activity. Only near sources of water or extra run-off (roadsides, canyon walls, sheltered washes, rock crevices, leaky pipelines, permanent streams, etc.) was there a decent (though sparse) diversity of the hardier flowering shrubs, perennials, and annuals, and their phenology appeared delayed by a couple weeks. Desert pepperbush (Lepidium fremontii) and indigobush (Psorothamnus arborescens minutifolius) were the easiest shrubs to find in flower, and Mojave mound cactus (Echinocereus triglochidiatus) was out in the southeastern canyons. The area received its first soaking rains in several months during this time, though, and is likely to be much greener in a month or two.
