Winecup lineariloba Flower 9929

The pale version of a winecup, Callirhoe involucrata var. lineariloba, that served as a background haze last time is the subject of this photograph that I took on the same property along E. University Blvd. in Georgetown on April 3. According to Shinners and Mahler’s Illustrated Flora of North Central Texas, some common names for this wildflower are slim-lobe poppy-mallow, geranium poppy-mallow, and cowboy rose. Yee-hah!
