This is actually an invasive plant called Spanish Broom (Spartium junceum) that is common in the mountains of southern California.
Cool spotting! However, since this is not a plant (let alone a toxic or medicinal one) please consider removing it from the Toxic and Medicinal Plants mission :)
This plant is called sacred datura (Datura wrightii). Check out my spotting and the wiki link to verify: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/197...
The plant you spotted is not a species of Tamarix: I'm not sure what it is, but I know with certainty that it is not salt cedar.
Since this plant has no flowers or fruit, could you please remove it from the Flowering Cacti and Succulents mission?
Since this echeveria isn't flowering/fruiting, could you please remove it from the Flowering Cacti and Succulents mission?
Please consider adding this spotting to the Flowering Cacti and Succulents mission (http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1207...), its a great shot of the fruit just after the flowers have withered.
Wow, really intriguing form! TerryBerry, since this is a fungi and not a plant, could you please remove it from the Toxic and Medicinal Plants mission?
These beautiful flowers are one of my personal favorites. They are from a hybrid species of Rock Rose (Cistus x purpureus).
This is a small Tobacco Tree (Nicotiana glauca) seedling. It is an invasive species in Southern California, originally from South America.
