    One of my favorite little things about this plant is that it’s all over the hillside to the south of the Dumbarton Bridge toll plaza, as folks enter Fremont, California, from the west. I always wave at it: “Hi, Fremontodendron!”

    My son graduated from high school yesterday, and the founder of his school, as is traditional, gives each graduate a (very young) California native tree to plant. There was a selection of five or six different kinds, and my son chose a Fremontodendron, about which we knew nothing except its common and Latin name. You must have heard us talking about it!
