statice
Limonium sinuatum
Plumbaginaceae

I'm a little disappointed to discover this statice is not native to CA. Every year, I notice a small patch blooming along the Carmel River, just past the seasonal footbridge at Garland.

I also see the "bushier" (for lack of a better word) L. perezii planted in several local gardens and public spaces.

Hermosa! I am a sucker for purple. One of my favourite is purple prairie clover. I saw some for the first time this spring on a hike the other day in the lower Ozarks of Missouri. These statice are just as gorgeous.
