Great to see a California native plant on this egroup! This was formerly
Hemizonia pungens until Jepson Manual 2 revised it to Centromadia. One of the
few flowering annuals during California's dry summers. I see it where I live in
San Jose in Lake Cunningham Park. Must be handled with extreme care due to the
spiny leaves, esp when it dries out.
