  • California Native Plant Status Reports
    Rare plant status reports were produced at various times between 1977 and 1993 for selected species native to California. Note that the most reliable information in the status reports will be the plant description and synonomy; often there is also a useful drawing or photograph. The distribution and status information is out of date for the majority of these reports.
