Eryngo Seed Head Remains by Colorful Flameleaf Sumac 2285

Click for greater clarity.


Do you remember eryngo, Eryngium leavenworthii, the prickly plant that produces what look like little purple pineapples? On November 19th I came across the remains of a few eryngo seed heads near some flameleaf sumac, Rhus lanceolata. This was within sight of the spot along US 183 in Cedar Park where I found the Indiangrass you recently saw.
