California sandwort (Minuartia californica)
California sandwort (Minuartia californica) is a California-native annual herb which produces tiny wildflowers less than 5 millimeters across. Though these white blossoms are small in stature, this species typically blooms in large numbers and can therefore still be seen from a reasonable distance.
