Purple Owl’s Clover

An Owl's Clover growing behind our office.


Well it seems that the Purple Owl’s Clover has pulled through this wildflower season, popping up in an unlikely place, the ADA ramp leading to our office. You can imagine our excitement when we noticed our new neighbor coming into work the other day.

The Purple Owl’s Clover is native to Southern California and can be found growing in altitudes up to 3000 feet. It gets its name from its small white buds, that many think resembles an owl’s face (pictured below). While walking around LASHP you will have to keep focused when searching for this wildflower; we only found one other, much smaller, example this season.
