Botanists know it as Wedelia texana, but the common name is zexmenia, which native plant folks (and many botanists) can’t resist transforming into sex mania. The details may seem an anticlimax now, but I’ll add that I photographed this zexmenia along the Turkey Creek Trail at Emma Long Metropolitan Park on July 5th.
