DOUGLAS' BEARDSTYLE

Higher Taxonomy
Family: Lamiaceae (Labiatae)View DescriptionDichotomous Key

Common Name: MINT FAMILY
Habit: Annual to shrub [tree, vine], glabrous to hairy, generally aromatic. Stem: generally erect, generally 4-angled. Leaf: generally simple to deeply lobed, generally opposite, generally gland-dotted. Inflorescence: generally cymes, generally many in dense axillary clusters surrounding stem, generally separated by evident internodes or collectively crowded, spike- or panicle-like, occasionally head-like or raceme, subtended by leaves or bracts; flowers sessile or pedicelled. Flower: generally bisexual; calyx generally 5-lobed, radial to bilateral; corolla generally bilateral, 1--2-lipped, upper lip entire or 2-lobed, +- flat to hood-like, occasionally 0, lower lip generally 3-lobed; stamens generally 4, epipetalous, generally exserted, paired, pairs generally unequal, occasionally 2, staminodes 2 or 0; ovary superior, generally 4-lobed to base chambers 2, ovules 2 per chamber, style 1, generally arising from center at junction of lobes, stigmas generally 2. Fruit: generally 4 nutlets, generally ovoid to oblong, smooth.
Genera In Family: +- 230 genera, 7200 species: worldwide. Many cultivated for herbs, oils (Lavandula, lavender; Mentha, mint; Rosmarinus, rosemary; Thymus, thyme), some cultivated as ornamental (in California Cedronella, Leonotis, Monarda, Phlomis). Note: Moluccella laevis L., shell flower, historical waif in California. Satureja calamintha (L.) Scheele subsp. ascendens (Jordan) Briq. reported as alien but not naturalized. Salazaria moved to Scutellaria; California Hyptis moved to Condea, California Satureja moved to Clinopodium.

Inflorescence: clusters of opposite cymes, head-like, spike-like, or interrupted, terminal and axillary, or flowers 1 in axils; bracts 2 or more per node, bristly-ciliate or not. Flower: +- sessile, calyx 2-lipped, lobes 5, deep, ciliate or not, tip extensions 0 to long, outer surface glabrous to coarsely hairy; corolla 2-lipped, lavender to purple or white, raised area on lower lip occasionally spotted; stamens 2--4, upper 2 sterile and vestigial or 0 in some taxa; style hairy below stigma lobes. Fruit: hairy.
Species In Genus: 8 species: California, Oregon, Baja California. Etymology: (Greek: bearded style)

Pogogyne douglasii Benth.
NATIVE
Habit: Robust. Stem: erect, < 45 cm. Inflorescence: 1--3 cm wide. Flower: calyx tube 2--4 mm, upper lobes 2--5 mm, tips acute, lower lobes 3--8 mm, 0.75--2.5 × tube, tips lanceolate to acuminate; corolla 9--20 mm, lavender, hairy, raised area on lower lip generally yellow-spotted; style hairy 2--6 mm below stigma lobes. Fruit: 1--2 mm.
Ecology: Vernal pools, swales; Elevation: < 900 m. Bioregional Distribution: NCoRO, NCoRI, SNF, GV, CW. Flowering Time: Mar--Jul Note: Highly variable, study needed.
Unabridged Note: Most distinct variant is Pogogyne douglasii subsp. parviflora (Benth.) J.T. Howell, Douglas' pogogyne (calyx lobes 0.75--1.5 × tube; corolla 11--15 mm). Tall plants with acute calyx lobes in central and southern SNF and low, branched plants of coastal bluffs in San Luis Obispo Co. may warrant recognition.
