Plant habit in Cookes Range, north-northeast of Cookes Peak, Luna County, New Mexico, 26 Apr 2014. I am not certain of the identity of this and the following images. N.D. Atwood has stated that Phacelia integrifolia [var. integrifolia] is "restricted to deep sandy soils" (Novon 17(4): 403-416) and this does seem to be the normal habitat in New Mexico. However, there are also populations at higher elevations in montane, very much non-sandy soils (gravelly clay loam, igneous gravel around outcrops, etc.). In addition to Cookes Range, I have seen these plants in the Ladron Mountains and near Salinas Peak. These plants also look "different", but probably not in any way that could be easily quantified... in any case, and as usual in Phacelia, I'm not really sure what's going on.
