Goal: Maintain existing Santa Rosa brodiaea occurrences to ensure multiple conserved occurrences with self sustaining populations to increase resilience to environmental and demographic stochasticity, maintain genetic diversity, and improve chances of persistence over the long term (>100 years) in grassland and vernal pool/alkali playa habitats.
Management units: 8
In 2018, inspect extant Santa Rosa brodiaea occurrences on Conserved Lands (see occurrence table) using the regional rare plant IMG monitoring protocol to record abundance and collect habitat and threats covariate data to determine management needs.

Management units: 8
Beginning in 2019, conduct routine management actions as identified through the IMG monitoring in 2018 at Santa Rosa brodiaea occurrences on Conserved Lands (see occurrence table). Depending on the type and level of threat, management should be conducted as needed, not necessarily every year, and using BMPs with precautions to do no harm.

Southwest Riverside County and immediately adjacent Miller Mountain in San Diego County . Smallest range of the southern California Brodiaeas, with just four known populations occupying only a small portion of a 40 km2 area, plus a fifth small population disjunct by 11 km.
Three occurrences on Conserved Lands in MU8 (Cleveland National Forest).
Occurs only on or very close to the 8â€“11 million-year-old Santa Rosa Basalt . Grows in many habitats, including next to vernal pools, but can also grow in drier locations. Can grow in disturbed areas, disturbed soils, on top of the water pipes, and in roadside berms. Elevation range 565-1045 meters .
New species of Brodiaea previously collected by at least six different botanists and variously determined as B. orcuttii (E. Greene) Baker, B. filifolia (S. Watson), or a hybrid between the two . Analysis distinguished it from B. filifolia and B. orcuttii by at least 11 separate characteristics. In the Themidaceae family .
Perennial bulbiferous herb  and basalt endemic .
Blooming period is May-June . Seeds mature in late spring and early summer.
Often reproduce by corms with populations in small areas often being clonal .
There appears to be low threat from humans  with possible threats from development . Long-term threat is the erosion of the Santa Rosa Basalt and loss of native habitat . Forms sterile hybrids with B. terrestris ssp. kernensis .
Appears to exist stably with the abundant nonnative grasses that are found at a few of the sites . Four of the known populations are protected as part of the Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve and Cleveland National Forest. The large population on Avenaloca Mesa is partially protected by the Nature Conservancy.
