Watch Out For The Poodle Bush ~

“As we finished the training at Crystal Lake on Saturday I met up with three Sheriffs who were patrolling area trails on dirt bikes. They mentioned that there was a preponderance of a irritant plant that they said was all over the San Gabriel’s since the Station Fire. “Poodle Bush” is what they called it and they showed me some welts that looked worse than anything I’ve seen from Poison Oak.

Looks nasty, watch out for it.” *Michael

Like many species in the forget-me-not family, Poodle-dog bush causes severe irritation if touched, akin to poison oak or stinging nettle. It can raise blisters lasting as long as two weeks.
