  • Rediscovered on the Palos Verdes Peninsula (LAX Co.) by A. Sanders in 1976. Only a few plants are known; the occurrence was diminished by grading in the 1930's. Only two wild specimens were known from the Channel Islands; one died in 1908, the other in 1936. See Pittonia 1:222 (1888) for original description, and Annals of the Missouri Botanical Garden 19:256-257 (1932) for taxonomic treatment.
