Sierra primrose (Primula suffrutescens)

Sierra primrose (Primula suffrutescens) is a showy California endemic wildflower found only in the subalpine and alpine zones. Its bright magenta petals make for a spectacularly vivid floral display — a beautiful reward for plant enthusiasts who are willing to venture to the Golden State's high altitude volcanic slopes.
