Rising like a scruffy whaleback above a sea of luxury homes, McGinty Mountain hosts a rich but circumspect treasure of botanical oddities. Several rare and endangered plant species make their home here on soils derived from a relatively uncommon form of bedrock called gabbro. More than half of California’s remaining specimens of Dehesa beargrass cling to the mountain’s rocky spine. The endemic San Diego thornmint, its habitat reduced by 90 percent due to urbanization over the last century, survives here, as does San Miguel savory, Perry’s tetracoccus, and Gander’s butterweed. Some of these plants are believed to be relict species, once common but now almost squeezed out of existence by gradual climate changes occurring over the past 10,000 years or more.
