Jepson Field Book volume 26 page 148
San Gorgonio Pass. ---------- - Chilopsis saligna, 10 to 14 ft. h., many-stemmed bush always as I see it in San Gorgonio Pass; in fruit mostly, the long slender pods hanging thickly over top of bushes; one shrub noted in full flower! - The purple of the desert ranges is like water color delicate, tender, ineffable; the purple of the chaparral ranges is deeper, more solid, like a close woollen weave, heavier and darker, indigo! ---------- No. 5258 cont. from p. 108. Lower (anterior) pair of stamens longer than the upper (posterior) pair. Mid-lobe lower lip slightly cupped; palate in center slightly hairy and a few purple dots on edge. Style glabrous; stigma 2-cleft. ::::::::: 8 Nov. 1912 ---------- - Populus fremonti, its uses in the Colorado River Valley: -- Telephone Poles; timber for houses; Bridges; Posts for fencing; Firewood. It is a highly valuable tree for a region where wood is so scarce. There is a line of telephone poles running to Bard from Yuma. They are about 16 ft. tall, are painted red, the portion in the ground creosoted apparently, and present a very attractive appearance. I do not know how long they last in the ground but the cost of replacing would be small. ---------- No. 5206 Cont. I find now (at Berkeley) that stamens are as long as corolla-lobes; likewise style. Field observation must have been on imperfect flowers.
