This is a small plant with a rounded or slightly elongated head of bright yellow flowers on a short peduncle. Leaves are both basal and cauline, fleshy with rhomboid, spatulate leaves. A rare plant, most easily found in the grounds of Asilomar and in Spanish Bay and in Marina Dunes. Experts disagree as to whether the plants represent two separate varieties — var. menziesii for the Asilomar/Spanish Bay population (the 2 photos on the left) and var. yadonii for the Marina Dunes population (the 2 photos on the right).
