Hooker’s Evening Primrose is still blooming on the Mendonoma Coast.

A beautiful native plant, Hooker's Evening Primrose, is blooming rather late this year. Amy Ruegg found this plant near Shell Beach on The Sea Ranch.

The plant has formed seed capsules, which Pine Siskins love to feed on. Here's a photo of the entire plant Amy found, and a close up of the flower.
