The photo above depicts Allium cratericola growing
on Table Mountain, Butte County, north of Oroville,
at about 1100' (370 m).  This is but one of many
fine portraitures taken by Mr. Sharnoff illustrating
wildflowers of the Sierra Nevada in California,
available for viewing at the Sierra Plants Project
web site.  In this form of this variable species, the
leaves are unusually broad; although the existence
of aberrant leaf forms has been recently documented.
