Ceanothus herbaceus

Yet another wildflower from Illinois Beach State Park on June 7th: Ceanothus herbaceus, called prairie redroot and Jersey tea. This species grows in Austin, too, even if I’ve rarely gotten to see it there. (Speaking of Austin, I’m far away from home now, so I may be slow in responding to comments.)

  1. Jersey Tea is also found here, although not yet by me.

  2. New Jersey Tea used to be quite rare here~I seldom saw it. This year it seemed to be all over the place. I love this crisp shot of the bloom.
