Endemic to San Clemente Island (CA), Camissonia guadalupensis ssp. clementina can only be found along the island’s coastal sand dunes. Though there are no immediate threats occurring against this basal rosette, its habitat preferences are as vulnerable as they are limited, therefore being classified as a Vulnerable species. This is an annual species that grows low to the ground and produces bright yellow flowers in the early summer. The San Clemente Island Evening Primrose can also be recognized by its fuzzy, red-outlined leaves and fuzzy red stems.
