I know this is a ground cherry, not sure which, I do have a few seedsand pic 4 is West Texas tween Van Horn and Ft Stockton, Tx -where i took pix of all the native flora beside where I parked, Thanx!
plant id- for Newton
That pink flower is very pretty, but I don,t know what it is.
The yellow one looks like common Sunflower.
It is a ground cherry, tho I am accustomed to seeing them MORE bluish- the 'cherries are smaller than the ones I remember too. is a sunflower
The leaves and flowers are wrong for the one I was trying to find but its a pretty flower.
Yeah- it isn't the one I was searching for- newton- I am reading they are an invasive ESP in Ca- but I will keep looking, when I get my books I will find what this one is. Thanx
Wow! It is a pretty plant- but this isn't bush- flowers don't crinkl like crispus- I need my Texas natives book sitting at the house, I am Goin to back out of thinking it was a ground cherry tho- and the single fruits are barely1/4" round. It is a low lying single rooted plant
The flower does look similar to a rock rose, but the leaves are not the right shape or color for rock rose.
It looks like a type of mallow, but the color is wrong for this one;
The seeds look like a tiny ground cherry, the round seed covered by the papery outer husks they simply are tiny- no thorns but the leaves are thickish and I presume small from no rains out there, does resemble a mallow, til you look closer
I have my Texas Natives Flowers Book and my guess is Mavalla, which is a Mallow. It's the only one that I can find that is trailing and not upright in habit. The leaves look the same to me. The color of the flowers can be pink, white, or yellowish..
K, 1 lonesome pic in our files looks like it may be what you call it. I have ltd resources, and was getting crosseyed on iPhone, but I believe it may be a globe mallow- sphaeralcea malviflora- tho research seems to like mostly orange ones, it does admit to pink or scarlet ones, these flowers do not open more than the one I show, the 'globose' fruits are what catch my eyes. Thanks for your persistence!!!
This one sure looks like it http://wildflower.org/gallery/result.php?id_image=20758
so it might be a mallow after all.
Yup- just not the ones I am accustomed to seeing - pinks aren't the color variations I am used to- the orange ones have a much tinier flower in native 'scapes , chuckl.
That picture of the sunflower is where it was found. That is along the Interstate 10 corridor- east of the I10/I20 split, but west of Ft Stockton, Tx
O.K. I was wondering if you found it in Texas.
It's a different place out there, chuckl, several of the flowers I put in the native forum, but they came from the same spot, hidden in the grasses
I've driven the 10 from Junction to CA way more times then I want to count. Lol When we took the train it followed the same route almost exactly. It's so barren it's hard to believe things can actually grow there.
I looked only at the Mallows in my book and the one I mentioned is the only one I could find that isn't upright.
I took ur suggestion, but my book is in Tx- and I am in Detroit, so I used Internet and the plant files to compare what I had, found a lot of info on the one Newton is searching for- and this one just isn't what they are, I know plant files and Latin namings change, but it drove me nuts working in tiny vision. Chuckl, I appreciate the assist!
If you strain your eyes you won't be able to drive. Lol it's hard because, especially with wilds, there can be variations in the same species. So the same one may have a little different color, in a different area.
