Ecology: Rocky hillsides, sandy washes; Elevation: < 1200 m. Bioregional Distribution: D; Distribution Outside California: to southwestern Utah, northwestern Mexico. Flowering Time: Mar--May, Nov--Jan Note: Further study needed to determine if Fagonia longipes Standl. [Fagonia californica Benth. subsp. longipes (Standl.) Felger & C.H.
