Another Texas wildflower mixture
We’re not done yet with mixtures of spring wildflowers. The yellow flower making its first appearance in these pages is the Nueces coreopsis, Coreopsis nuecensis, which doesn’t grow in Austin but is found not far to the south and southeast. By now you probably recognize the Indian paintbrushes, firewheels (also called Indian blankets), bluebonnets, and phlox mixed in among the coreopsis. This is yet another picture from our almost-300-mile grand tour of wildflowers south of Austin on March 31.
