This native plant is know by many names, each one quite descriptive of the plant's unique characteristics! It is a trailing vine, which is covered with recurved prickles, earning it the name “Cat's Claw”. The leaves, which are also edged with prickles, fold up when they are touched...this is the reason this wildflower is sometimes called the Sensitive Brier or the Bashful Brier! Impressive balls of color occur in congested bunches when the flowers are in bloom. Grows well in prairies, or hanging over a wall!
