Marah Macrocarpus - Habitats

Habitats

The Southern California Manroot, Marah macrocarpus, grows most vigorously by streams or in washes but is also successful in dry chaparral, at elevations up to 1,600 feet (490 m). Its range extends from Santa Barbara and the Transverse Ranges in the west and north to Baja California and the Mojave Desert and Sonoran Desert in the south and east. It will tolerate a variety of soil types and acidities, but it requires seasonally moist soil. Vines can grow in full-sun to partially shaded conditions. In the Mediterranean climate areas of California, manroot emerges soon after winter rains begin, grows until late spring, and dies back completely in the heat and dryness of summer.
