Purple Mountain Saxifrage

If you spend anytime hiking in the Rainbow Mountains, or inner Central Coast Mountains and likely many other alpine areas you will run into clumps of the purple mountain saxifrage or Saxifraga oppositifolia.  They like ledges of cliffs and moist cracks of rocks and are quite showy in areas with often not much more than bare rock.  Just one of the many alpine wildflowers that you can enjoy if you can get into the alpine.  Grizzly
