Brazoria truncata Flowers 1620

Here’s Brazoria truncata, known as blunt-sepal brazoria and rattlesnake flower. Like two previous photographs, this one comes from an April 27th field trip to Bastrop State Park led by botanist Bill Carr. If you’d care to compare a kind of Brazoria I’m familiar with from Austin, you’re welcome to. Both species, which happen to be the only two in the genus, are endemic to Texas, meaning that they grow nowhere else.
