3 Row of Barnyard Foxtails along Big Sur Coast, California

A botanist will thoroughly enjoy their visit to Big Sur because the corridor hosts over 340 varieties of trees, plants, scrub and grasses. They are clustered into 19 different “plant communities” based on the diverse terrain and microclimates. These barnyard foxtails are considered “New Native.” This means they were accidentally introduced by early pioneers who settled here in the late 19th century after Mexico ceded Alta California to the United States in 1848.
