Pedicularis Dudleyi

We have an extremely rare plant species that grows around our home called Dudley’s lousewort (Pedicularis dudleyi). It’s a low-growing perennial herb with purple flowers that only grows in three locations in northern California, one of which is the redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains.
