Chaparral Pea

(Pickeringia montana)

"Upon wild mountain slopes … the chaparral pea often makes dense, impenetrable thickets. It would be impossible to mistake it for any other shrub, with the bushes a mass of color. Its green branchlets terminate in long, rigid spines… Woe to him who tries to penetrate the chaparral when it is composed of this formidable and uncompromising shrub! The result is likely to be a humiliating progress upon hands and knees before he can extricate himself, probably with torn garments and scratched visage."

Mary Elizabeth Parsons, The Wildflowers of California, 1897
