About Coast Jepsonia (Jepsonia parryi) Jepsonia parryi is an uncommon species of flowering plant in the saxifrage family known by the common names coast jepsonia and Parry's jepsonia. It is native to the coast and inland hills chaparral of southern California and Baja California. Jepsonia parryi is a small perennial herb producing usually only a single leaf from an unbranched caudex. The leaf is round or kidney-shaped and has a ruffled, lobed edge.
