Snow-on-the-Mountain Plants Flowering 6106

Click for greater clarity and size.

Late August or early September is the normal time in central Texas to begin seeing the white of snow-on-the-mountain, Euphorbia marginata. On September 5th in the Austin suburb of Cedar Park I found this colony adorned with flowers and insects. Notice how several snow-on-the mountain stalks had gotten wind-entangled and formed a green and white lattice.
