Prairie celestial

with 25 comments

In the almost six years of this blog, here’s a native wildflower that’s making its first appearance: Nemastylis geminiflora. Vernacular names include prairie celestial(s), celestial lily, celestial ghost iris, and prairie pleatleaf. I don’t often encounter this wildflower, but some had sprung up in several places on the property of our friends David and Jolyn when we visited them on April 9th in Dripping Springs, a town about half an hour west of Austin.
