Bohemia Ecological Preserve

There are 3 species of Manzanita at Bohemia Ecological Preserve. This one near Four Corners is in serpentine soil, so it is most likely the rare Baker's Manzanita. It is adapted to wildfire in its habitat by producing a large knot of dormant buds just underground that sprout after the top burns. This species is endemic to Sonoma County, California. Heath (Ericaceae) Family.
