Applegate's Indian paintbrush (Castilleja applegatei)

Applegate's Indian paintbrush (Castilleja applegatei) is a beautifully showy California-native wildflower that is endemic to western North America. This perennial herb's leaves are distinctively wavy, making identification fairly easy and giving rise to the alternate common name, wavyleaf Indian paintbrush.
