Golden groundsel in a colony

Golden Groundsel Flowering in Colony 5241

Golden groundsel, Packera obovata (formerly Senecio obovatus), thrives in shade or partial shade, where it can form colonies. For several springs in a row I’ve gone back to a creekside along Old Lampasas Trail to photograph this colony, as I did on March 24th. Packera obovata is a close relative of the butterweed that you saw from a distance in the last post.


I’m out of town for a few days. Feel free to leave comments, but it may take me a while to answer them.
