Sidalcea stipularis

Scadden Flat checkerbloom

A very rare checkerbloom native to a single marsh in the Sierra foothills.  Round, serrated leaves appear in late winter and spread quickly to form an eight inch tall, light green groundcover.  Soft-pink cup-shaped flowers bloom in early summer atop two foot stems clothed in lance-shaped leaves.  Combine with low grasses in a well-watered meadow for a lovely naturalized look.  Plant in full sun to light shade with moderate to regular water.  Tolerant of heavy soils.  Winter deciduous.
