Southern California Wildflower ID Help Needed

Posted by LucyS1 none (My Page) on

I saw an unusual plant in the Silverado Canyon area that I'm having trouble identifying. The plant is a 1-3 foot tall thistle type plant with very large, 4" fuzzy white seedheads. The plant turns brown and goes dry when the seedhead develops.

Does anyone know what this is, or where I might find out? Thanks very much.
