Adenostoma fasciculatum




This is probably the most common single shrub in California. This plant is a pyrophyte (fire lover). The seeds germinate rapidly during the first rain after a fire. The leaves are almost needles, and the flowers that appear in May are very tiny.

This stuff just covers the steep hillsides in the Lexington Basin.
