Thank you @amykay08 (fellow plant systematist in training) for the Stachys cutting! It's happy and healthy with this new set of shoots, and hopefully it will be the mother to a large set of clones. It traveled 1,600 miles just to have its genome sequenced!

Dozens of these ancient mortars dot one of the bluffs off of the Sierra Vista Trail. People used to grind food (presumably acorns) here so often that perfect circles were eventually drilled deep into the rock. After it rains, the holes fill with water that I filter for drinking.
