Soon after we drove into Arizona from New Mexico along Interstate 10 on October 17, we pulled over at the Texas Canyon rest area, where I was pleased to come across some snake-cotton. When I searched online later I found that two species are native in that area, Froelichia arizonica and Froelichia gracilis. I can’t tell which one this is.
If you want, you can have a look back at the Texas Canyon rest area from our 2014 trip to the Southwest.
You can also review the only other post in which a species of snake-cotton has appeared here.
