“What? All you’re gonna give us of one of the most common wildflowers in Texas, and one that you never even showed us a single picture of in your blog, is a violet-colored glow as a background for something else?”

Okay, you got me, I’ll make amends. Here’s a picture of prairie verbena, Glandularia bipinnatifida, in its own right. For more information, and to see a state-clickable map of the many places in the United States where this species grows, you can visit the USDA website. Prairie verbena is also native to Mexico.

As in yesterday’s post, the date was October 15, and the place the south side of Great Hills Park, just half a mile downhill from where I live in northwest Austin.
