Blazing Stars
Rancho San Vicente, April 2010
Bursts of Blazing Stars can be found in parks and preserves throughout Santa Clara Valley.
They favor steep, south-facing rocky slopes.
Flowers range in size from 1.5 inches to a full 3 inches across.
In addition to this hillside, Blazing Stars can be found on Hicks Road.
And in nearby Calero County Park.
Fast asleep, this bumblebee awaits the sun's warmth and the flower's fragrance to awaken it
Blazing Stars begin blooming in early April.
Most plants have multiple flowers.
A patch of Blazing Stars can bloom for weeks.
Their bright yellow color can be seen from some distance away.
