I have not grown this plant. It is a native plant found in California and is named after Dr. Tracey Gillette Call (1915-1994) and his wife Viola Ruth Clifton Call (1920-2002) who taught laboratory classes at Cal Poly in the Biological Sciences Department. It is uncommon, grows along streambanks in coniferous forests and has been documented habitating the High Sierra Nevada region. The bloom ovary is usually hairy and the pedicels are webbed at base. The 3.55 mm fruit is oblong to obovate. The leaves are bipinnate and highly serrated. It has large compound umbels of white blooms. When ingested, it can cause ssensitvity to sunlight and when handled can cause dermatitis in some people.
