Owl's CloverCastilleja exserta, Ornate owl's clover is a spring time forb found in many areas of the Mojave Desert. At full growth, it may reach 1 foot in height. It is important to plant Owl's clover with seeds of other species, as it is a hemiparasite plant. It gets some of its nutrients directly from the roots of other plants by injecting them with haustoria (a root that seeks out the roots of other plants.) This normally doesn't cause harm to other plants with strong root systems, such as native grasses.
