Physaria kingii (S. Watson) O'Kane & Al-Shehbaz subsp. bernardina (Munz) O'Kane & Al-Shehbaz

San Bernardino Mountains Bladderpod

Found in only a few localities in the San Bernardino mountains, P. kingii subsp. bernardina is listed as endangered by the California Native Plant Society and the Federal government. Found on higher outcrops of grano-dioritic rock, the plant itself isn't all that impressive, but is a pleasing burst of color against the white of its native substrate.
