Agoura Hills Dudleya (Dudleya cymosa ssp. agourensis)

pleistocene

Description

Growing on a NW facing rocky slope. Some plants keyed within DUCYAG but many had D. lanceolata features (ie too long of leaves or too long and thick peduncle). These plants are outside the current range for Dudleya cymosa agourensis by ~7 miles, but are on the same geologic unit. This is an area that burned up in the Hill Fire, and the yellow flowering plants co-occur with red/orange flowering D. lanceolata, which helps account for the high variability/hybridity.
