Monardella stebbinsii Hardham & Bartel
Habit: Subshrub, matted or clumped, < 1 m diam; hairs dense, felt-like. Stem: 15--40 cm. Leaf: 12--22(28) mm (including petiole, 2--4 mm), 5--12(14) mm wide, thick, narrowly ovate, entire, hairs unicellular and multicellular (latter generally 0.2 mm), abaxially also short-stalked-glandular, ash- to dark gray, purple-blotched. Inflorescence: flower cluster 1 per main stem (or several in +- terminal spikes or racemes), 8--20(25) mm wide; bracts lanceolate; outer bracts leathery, purple-tinged, soft-hairy and slender-stalked-glandular (gland-tipped hairs generally > 0.1 mm), hairs longer toward margin. Flower: calyx 8--9 mm, green, purple, or straw-colored; tube slender-stalked-glandular (hairs > 0.1 mm) and nonglandular-hairy (hairs multicellular), lobes narrowly acute, hairs on lobes and sinus area = hairs on tube; corolla 12--18 mm, pink.
Ecology: Rocky serpentine slopes; Elevation: 800--1100 m. Bioregional Distribution: n SNH (Serpentine Canyon, Plumas Co.). Flowering Time: Jul--Sep Note: Inflorescence, bract, and calyx characters overlap with Monardella follettii, which has more conspicuous stalked glands (because multicellular hairs on bracts and calyx are lacking); more study needed.
