Copper lily in an earlier phase
In the last post you saw a copper lily, Habranthus tubispathus, that with a few others of its kind had been called forth on July 13 by the consecutive rainy days we’d been having in Austin (and continued to have for several more). Perhaps half a dozen already open little flowers were scattered about, but there were several times as many buds rising from the ground. You see one of them here, alongside part of a taller stalk.
