Mojave Pincushion
January/February

      There are several species of Chaenactis native to the Death Valley area. In fact, Mary DeDecker in her Flora of the Northern Mojave Desert, California lists seven and statewide there are thirteen different species of Chaenactis according to calflora.org. Mojave Pincushion, also known as Dusty Maidens and Large-Flowered Pincushion, is fairly common throughout Inyo County. The specimen shown here was photographed at 5000 feet along the top of the Slate Range, just west of Death Valley National Park. (Click here for more info!)
