Padre's shooting star (Primula clevelandii var. patula)

Padre's shooting star (Primula clevelandii var. patula, formerly Dodecatheon clevelandii ssp. patulum) is a California native wildflower which is also endemic to the state. Each beautiful, nodding flower has a single stigma, surrounded by deep purple, partially fused stamens with yellow highlights. Above this tip are wavy, recurved petals that are similarly-colored at the base, but quickly transition to white or magenta.
