Opening in Gambel's oak, southern exposure, partially shaded
Artemisia ludoviciana, Ericameria nauseosa, Ambrosia psilostachya, Quercus gambelii
Long leaves: glabrous, ciliate, entire, wavy, upper twisted, narrowly lanceolate, long-tapered/pointed, sessile; plant about 5 dm tall, stems mostly glabrous.
Unusually late blooming, narrow-leaved, low elevation phase that does not fit particularly well with described varieties for this area. Did not seem to be something planted nor escaped from the garden although that is a possibility. Few in number. Since this was within the garden, no actual material was collected.
