Lands End (Google, OSM)

Description

Ceanothus thyrsiflorus was reported to have covered many of San Francisco's hills at the time of the Gold Rush, but its chaparral and coastal scrub habitats were quickly decimated by wood cutters gathering firewood to supply a growing city (one with relatively few trees other than coast live oak). Blue blossom is now abundant in San Francisco only on the Presidio Coastal Bluffs. This lone individual is at the top of "Dead Man's Bluff", and has likely escaped trampling due to its location at the very top edge of the highest cliff at Lands End.

Description

I took this photo many years ago, but it is a noteworthy enough plant observation to be added to iNaturalist retroactively. There are very few records of this species from San Francisco and no specimens collected since 1962. Only days after taking this photo, the plants (5 in all) had been apparently eaten - nothing remained but holes where the roots had been.
