Description: Blochman's Daisy is a wildflower endemic to California, where it is limited to the coastline of San Luis Obispo and northern Santa Barbara counties. It is a perennial that grows from a woody base. The stem is lined with evenly spaced, narrow, straight leaves, each about 1-3cm long. The ray petals are white to lavender. Blochman's Daisy is found exclusively in the dunes and coastal hillsides, a habitat that is declining due to development, making the plant endangered.
