Triteleia peduncularis

Triteleia peduncularis is a monocot flowering plant in the genus Triteleia. Its common names include longray triteleia. It is endemic to California, where it occurs in the coastal and inland mountain ranges of the northern and central sections of the state. It grows in vernally moist habitat such as meadows, grassland, and vernal pools, often in areas with serpentine soils. It is a perennial wildflower growing from a corm. There are two or three basal leaves measuring up to 40 centimeters long and 1.5 wide. The inflorescence arises on a smooth, erect stem up to 80 centimeters tall. It is an umbel-like cluster of several flowers which are borne on very long, straight pedicels measuring up to 18 centimeters long. Each funnel-shaped flower is white, often tinged purple, with six tepals up to 1.6 centimeters in length. There are six stamens with white anthers, and the ovary at the center is yellow when the flower is fresh.

Notes

Comments

Triteleia peduncularis has a wide distribution in the northern California Coast Ranges, but it is usually not common and is quite rare south of San Francisco. The yellow ovary contrasts notably with the white perianth. The long-ascending pedicels are also distinctive. Triteleia × tubergenii L. W. Lenz is a cultivated amphidiploid hybrid between T. laxa and T. peduncularis (L. W. Lenz 1970).
