Below are links to photographs of wildflowers of the southern California chaparral, desert, and mountains, indexed according to scientific, common, or family names. The plants were organized and identified by Barbara J. Collins. The photographs were taken and scanned by Lorence G. Collins. Clicking on a given photo will produce the same photo without titles or decorative headings, suitable for printing. A more detailed description and key to the chaparral plants may be obtained from the following book : Key to Coastal and Chaparral Flowering Plants of Southern California, by Dr. Barbara J. Collins.
Pictures that were added to this website came from Joshua Tree National Park, the Anza-Borrego Desert, the Mojave Desert, the eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains, and the California coast as far north as Tiburon and as far south as San Diego. We have plans to add to the website, including photographs of the trees, shrubs, and wildflowers of the western Sierras and Canadian Rockies. If you are pleased with the results so far or have any questions, send us an email at email@example.com.
As you may know, a considerable amount of effort has been put into the
development of this website. Each and every photograph had to be
catalogued and each plant properly identified, checked and rechecked,
to insure the accuracy of the website. We gratefully acknowledge
the work of our son, Kevin Collins, who designed and authored the
website and search engine. This project has been a labor of love for
the three of us. We also gratefully acknowledge the Hewlett
Foundation and California Lutheran University for providing us with
small grants to help defray the costs of film development and travel
used for the expansion of this website.
