Default Help indentifying a plant:

From: David Walker

Can you tell me what the rather large bush/scrub which is abundant in the Los Padres National Forest, specifically along the coast just north of Santa Barbara is? It is distinguished by the beautiful purple/lavender color blossoms now blooming. The plant/bush is 4' to probably 8' tall and quite abundant.

Dave -

Did you ever get an answer? In May, it could have been a sage (Salvia species), or even a lupine, but I'm betting it was a form of Ceanothus. Some CNPS chapters have plant show & tell at their meetings, and sometimes people bring plants to be identified. Maybe the Channel Islands Chapter or Northern Santa Barbara Subchapter people could ID the plant?

It's always a good idea to travel with a camera, so you have a picture to show to people who could tell you the name of the plant.

Good luck,

...Lori Hubbart
