Raspberry Buckthorn - USE CODE "CNFL17"
The Ancient Bristlecone Pine National Forest in the White Mountains of California are home to the oldest plants in the world. At elevations over 10,000 feet, even the summers can get mighty cold. I was hiking around the Patriarch grove in July 1996 when I was hit by a hail storm. These Raspberry Buckthorns seemed to weather the storm just fine however.
