A close look at mountain pink flowers and buds

Mountain Pink Flowers and Buds 3710

So let’s make it three in a row for mountain pink, Zeltnera beyrichii, with a closeup showing its dense flowers and buds. Everything you see here makes up just a portion of the dome of a single plant. Now that’s what I call prolific.

This June 15th photograph comes from a property at FM 1431 and Brahma Ln. on the west side of the town of Lago Vista (which was someone’s misguided attempt to say Lake View in Spanish).
