Wildflowers at McKinney Falls State Park
Let’s return back to McKinney Falls State Park over Easter weekend and wrap-up our time there with some wildflowers (with a side of vines, trees, and shrubs—it was spring, things were blooming!). According to my post drafts, I have another post for Pedernales Falls State Park that I didn’t get around do. Looks like I’ll be sharing another post from there soon!
Lupinus texensis, the Texas bluebonnet
Callirhoe involucrata, winecup
Onosmodium bejariense, soft-hair marbleseed
Nemophila phacelioides, Texas baby blue eyes
Tradescantia ohiensis, ‘alba’ version
Torilis arvensis, spreading hedge parsley, I think
Amorpha fruticosa, false indigo bush
Salvia farinacea, mealy blue sage
Cylindropuntia leptocaulis, Christmas cactus
Viburnum rufidulum, rusty blackhaw
Ungnadia speciosa, Mexican buckeye
Zerene cesonia, southern dogface—I think. It’s pretty worn but this is my best guess and maybe a female.
Callophrys gryneus, Juniper Hairstreak butterfly on Allium canadense
I love the hairstreak and the false indigo bush! All are fabulous, but those colors. WOW!
It looks like someone brushed glitter onto the Nemophila phacelioides. Great photos, I love Texas wildflowers. Can’t believe this park is so close to Austin. I still have so many to check out!
How I love wildflowers!!!!!!
