Steve, I've seen them in the mountains of California, a few hours out of
Davis. There they grew in heavy shade as well as full sun. I tried to visit
them this winter (an ill-fated although enjoyable trip) and all I saw were
snow-fields! These plants get a lot of snow during the winter. During
the summer, the area is a wet seep.
