Mentzelia lindleyi, commonly called Lindley's Blazing Star, is an annual wildflower found in the California Coast Ranges, San Francisco Bay Area, and San Joaquin Valley of California, as well as Arizona. It is found in coastal sage scrub and southern oak woodland. It grows to 1–3 feet, and produces bright yellow flowers, 3 inches in diameter. It prefers sandy soils that drain well, and requires full sun.
Tortoises love the bright yellow flowers!
