sticky snapdragon ~ 07/14/11 ~ Garland Ranch

sticky snapdragon / withered snapdragon / Sierra snapdragon
Antirrhinum multiflorum (aka Sairocarpus multiflorus)
Plantaginaceae (formerly Scrophulariaceae)

Now, I figured this was a garden escapee, because it's big and colorful. Nope. It's native to Monterey County. As I was trying to get clean close-up shots with the breeze, I held the plant and discovered it is indeed sticky. This is the only spot we found this plant through our hike.
