Snow Brush aka Sticky Laurel or Tobacco Brush (Ceanothus velutinus var. velutinus)
I’m not terribly confident of this identification, but it’s what I put in my notes when I shot this back in 2017.
I was right about being wrong.
This is Haemanthus albiflos, which some call paintbrush. I got the brush part correct and everything else wrong.
