First climbing milkweed I've seen flowering this year. (Funastrum cynanchoides var. hartwegii)
My favorite find so far this year. The last time Salvia henryi was collected from Tortugas Mountain was by E. O. Wooton in 1894. I collected it again from presumably the same population 124 years later.
"Devil's claw" kinda hurts when it jabs into your ankles... (Proboscidea althaeifolia)
More corolla morpholgies from the arroyos. Nama hispida, Dimorphocarpa wislizeni, and Penstemon parryi.
Yuccas are budding/blooming. Can you tell they're related to asparagus? (Yucca treculeana)
Interesting 5 cm long corolla tubes on flaxflowered gilia. (Ipomopsis longiflora ssp. neomexicana)
Dwarf false-pennyroyal growing right out of the limestone on A/Tortugas Mountain and almost flowering. (Hedeoma nana)
If we get some rain any time soon, these strawberry hedgehog cacti will have tons of 6-inch neon flowers. I haven't seen one in flower yet, but it should be surreal when it happens. (Echinocereus stramineus)
