Triphysaria eriantha - Yellow Owls Clover

Triphysaria eriantha grows in the Sierra Foothills in grasslands in the oak woodlands and yellow pine forests. I have purchased a number of wildflower seed mixes including different species of owls clover. Many of the related Indian paintbrush species have been determined to require the association of a second plant species. I recently saw a pot of plants at a Botanical Gardens plant sale that included Owls Clover. But I would not depend on seed from Triphysaria eriantha to be a success broadcast in the garden. Sow wildflower seed with the first significant rains of the Fall.
