Pictured Wildflower: Sulphur Flower Erigonum umbellatum
Wildflower Field notes: Sulphur Flower is very common. They can be found in flower colors ranging from white, yellow, pale pink to pale red. I've seen Sulphur Flower turn nearly blood red when the flowers have matured. Look for Sulphur Flower in any dry, sunny area from the foothills to the subalpine ecosystems. 

Sulphur Flower is very drought tolerant making them an excellent candidate for the xeriscape or wildflower gardens.
