ALSO KNOWN AS
Buckthorn family (Rhamnaceae)
Find Blueblossom in the Chaparral, redwood forest, and mixed woodland slopes and canyons along the California coastline and foothills from Del Norte County to Monterey County. It varies dramatically in form and size over its natural range, with some plants growing fairly upright to 30 feet and others growing in a mounding form to only 2-3 feet tall.
Blueblossom flowers are important for bees and butterflies, and its seed pods are an important food source for birds and small mammals.
