The flowers look right but the leaves look a bit too "leafy".
My guess would be no, it's something else.

guess what? these plants are also poisonous...if you brush against them you get a poison oak-like reaction!
.

Interesting! I am super allergic to poison oak. Poodledog or not, I'm going to stay away from these too then.

You'll find it above the canyons and in the canyons. Ticks, poison oak, poodledog, loose and crumbly rock, rattlesnakes. Love the San Gabriels!!

I've made a "pact" with cougars --- I'll stand clear of them if they stand clear of me ...... :shock:

This is a better close- up photo of poodledog bush. Note the long flowering stems. Generally it is not ground cover in size but more like a bush. This is how a hillside can appear.

Found this image in Bob's google search. Pretty gnarly. Almost identical to the symptoms on my thumb and hand.
Don't underestimate this stuff. It's serious,...probably should have named it pitbull bush instead.
