Phacelia integrifolia

Phacelia integrifolia Flowers 9278

As much as I’d gone to Monahans Sandhills State Park on April 12 to see the dunes, I was pleased to find some native plants there, too, even if the wind and the overcast sky made photographing them difficult. From the blue curls that grow in Austin I knew that the flowers shown here must be a relative, and after looking through botanical sources I’d say this is probably Phacelia integrifolia, known as gypsum phacelia and scorpionflower.
