Channel Island Morning Glory

Calystegia Macrostegia amplissima


A large Morning Glory endemic to the Channel Islands off the coast of southern California. It is listed as rare and endangered. It is mostly white but many have some pink on the petals. It can cover large areas, especially in the protected valleys with sun and water. It is not found much up on the hills and cliffs exposed to the wind. The Bee in the second picture is of the Family Andrenidae, the Miner Bees. See the spotting for this Bee:

Thank you Mark, it also doesn't seem to close up in the bright sun like most Morning Glories do.
