Fiddleneck? by molizard

Fiddleneck?

Native wildflower. I'm told this is fiddleneck. I didn't know it came in these colors. I see yellow fiddleneck at higher elevations. It's also related to "phacelia",that I've posted natives of previously, http://365project.org/molizard/365/2010-06-03 http://365project.org/molizard/365/2010-06-21 http://365project.org/molizard/365/2010-04-23, this variety has very tiny blooms
Lovely shot; I like the exquisite way the flowers arch along the stem. Lovely DOF, too.

Thanks Rob, I guess I was a little off here. I got my info from a photo in a loose leaf binder at the nature center affiliated with the lake where I found this. Common names can be problematic. With this new info, I'm going to guess heliotropium curassavicum.

It's a close relative of fiddleneck.
