  Nyctaginaceae Mirabilis bigelovii, Mojave National Preserve, San Bernardino County, California
Photograph taken October 15, 2005.

There is one Mirabilis multiflora that I have been following for a few years. This plant survived, as it is a perennial growing every year from the roots. I noticed, though, that all of the M. multiflora in this area were very much chewed upon. This is unusual. Iím thinking that perhaps the rabbits, or other small mammals, must be very hungry and are forced to eat this plant, even though it may not be very palatable to them.
