The plant commonly known as just Miner’s Lettuce (or Indian Lettuce, or Spring Beauty) holds a little surprise: including all subspecies, no less than 13 different ones grow in San Diego County. The two most common ones are Claytonia parviflora and Claytonia perfoliata, but their ranges and bloom periods overlap.
The Baby Blue Eyes have long puzzled me. The photos that I found online didn’t really match what I saw with my own eyes. More specifically, most of the flowers that I saw here in San Diego County where much smaller, and looked different. Yet people told me: yes, those are Baby Blue Eyes.
