Jessica's stickseed (Hackelia micrantha)
Jessica's stickseed (Hackelia micrantha) is a California-native wildflower, which is found in many high elevation forests throughout western North America. When the flowers go to seed, prickly fruits emerge and cling to passing objects; hence the common name. Other names include Jessica sticktight, meadow stickseed, and small-flowered stickseed.
