Square-Bud Primrose Flowering 8380

Click for greater clarity.

Sundrops: a brighter and more compact name for Calylophus berlandieri than square-bud primrose, which is also in common use. I photographed this plant flowering along Great Northern Blvd. in north-central Austin on February 19. You saw a few of these flowers late last April as part of an expansive, mostly two-tone-yellow wildflower display, but this is the first closeup to appear here.
