Monardella follettii (Jeps.) Jokerst
Habit: Subshrub, erect, open. Stem: 30--60 cm, glabrous (puberulent or glandular-hairy distally), purple or green; internodes generally 10--75 mm. Leaf: 15--45 mm, 4--12 mm wide, lanceolate to elliptic, entire, +- glabrous (unicellular hairs occasionally occur), both faces abaxially purple-tinged or not. Inflorescence: peduncle <= 75 mm; flower cluster 1(several) per main stem, generally 12--20 mm wide; bracts 6--10 mm, 4--5 mm wide, leathery, lanceolate to narrowly ovate, hairy, conspicuously spreading-stalked-glandular (hairs > 0.1 mm), +- green or straw-colored. Flower: calyx 7--8 mm, tube generally short-hairy proximally, tube and lobes conspicuously spreading-stalked-glandular (hairs > 0.1 mm, equal on sinus area, lobes, tube); corolla 13--15 mm, pink.
Ecology: Forest, open, rocky slopes, serpentine, roadcuts; Elevation: 700--2000 m. Bioregional Distribution: n SNH (Plumas Co.). Flowering Time: Jun--Sep
Unabridged Note: Intergrades with Monardella stebbinsii, especially in calyx, bract, and inflorescence characters; more study needed. Foliage coloration variable in populations; green and purple plants coexisting. Sympatric with Monardella odoratissima subsp. pallida, which appears to occupy non-serpentine soil; putative intergrades occur in transitional habitats (more study needed). Morphologically similar to Monardella purpurea, but that sp. has slender-stalked glandular hairs < 0.1 mm on the calyx and bracts and spreading stiff hairs on calyx teeth and sinus area. .
