[Theodore P.] Lukens
the two Adenostoma
Martinez Dec. 11. 1900
My dear Mr Lukens
The package of specimens came after mailing a letter for you yesterday It is Adenostoma sparsifolium. The other species, Adenostoma fasciculatum so abundant in the Sierra farming extension belts like heath just below the yellow pine, of course you know, often called "chamiso". Your species is restricted to the southern ranges, I first saw it on the San Jacinto Mtns back of San Diego I would like to see it in flower. It belongs to the rose family
