Helen Sharsmith, in Spring Wildflowers of the San Francisco Bay Region, 1965, says “Spanish Californians called this most beautiful of all owl’s clovers Escobita, little broom, because of the densely clumped flower-spikes. Under a hand-lens the flowers are exquisite creations, complicated beyond belief…the upper lip being heavily bearded and hooked at the tip. Common, valleys or open hills. March – May.” Jepson and other references now may call it Castilleja exerta var. pallidus— highly variable!
