Collomia linearis is a species of flowering plant in the phlox family known by the common names tiny trumpet and slenderleaf collomia.[2] This tiny wildflower is native to North America where it is fairly widespread across the north and west.[2] It is an annual herb with a velvety erect stem bearing long, narrow green leaves. Atop the stem is a cluster of up to 20 white or light pink flowers, each about a centimeter across. Each has five small rounded petals and stamens tipped with anthers bearing white pollen.
