(East Fork Kaweah River)
Clematis lasiantha - heads of fruit noticed one evening near Lake Canon - looked in the dusk like a plant in flower - trailing over the top of the brush. Called "Pipe Stem". Pith can be run right out and the stem adjusted to the bowl of a pipe.

- Asclepias vestita = A. eriocarpa Benth. See no. 563. Common along the Kaweah River from [Lemm] Cove to Three Rivers and doubtless higher up. On account of the exceeding fineness of its silky [co..as] which are like satin or floss, the tufts are used as a filling for scent-bags. It is much more desiable than cotton.
