Castilleja purpurea var. lindheimeri 6596

To complete the Castilleja purpurea trilogy I have to jump back to April 2nd, when I wandered in the greenbelt north of Old Lampasas Trail in Austin and was pleasantly surprised to find some Castilleja purpurea var. lindheimeri, which you can see comes in shades of orange.

If you’d like to learn a little more about this versatile species, all three of whose varieties have appeared here now, you can check out an article at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.
