Anemopsis californicum (Apache Beads) is an unusual plant, the only member of its species and related to lizard’s tail (Saururus). It has oval green leaves often splashed with red, and these are aromatic, smelling of orange peel and honey. It grows long runners like a strawberry plant on which new plants form. Flowers are similar to a coneflower with a central cone surrounded by white bracts/petals which age to red in a most attractive way. Anemopsis californicum is late flowering, always a useful trait.
