Unkempt four-nerve daisy

with 18 comments

A common wildflower in Austin, and one that’s found here for most of the year, is the four-nerve daisy, Tetraneuris linearifolia. Here’s the rather wildly arrayed flower head of one seen from the side. Look at the midsection of the ray pointing “northeast” and you can easily count the four “nerves” that have given the species the first part of both its scientific and popular names.

I took this photograph on April 1st along Yaupon Dr. in my extended neighborhood.
