common deerweed ~ 06/09/11 ~ Pinnacles

common deerweed / California broom
Acmispon glaber var. glaber (formerly Lotus scoparius var. scoparius)

I've been wondering what this plant is, because I feel like I'm seeing it everywhere I go this summer. I finally got around to looking it up. I'm using the variety name as listed in the Pinnacles plant list.

ps 07/13/11 - For a good blog entry summary on deerweed, see Curbstone Valley Farm.

pss 05/12/13 - I've updated the scientific name to the 2012 Jepson Manual Treatment.
