Astragalus trichopodus

Wildflowers Dicots Eudicots Fabales Fabaceae Astragalus

Santa Barbara Milkvetch.

Can start blooming in mid February and continue until early June. Seen in the valley of the Santa Ynez river, on Little Pine Mtn., Lost Valley Trail (near NIRA) and Franklin Trail (the only front country location).

By May it has formed seed pods which rattle as you run through them, see bottom picture.
