Small-Flower Pawpaw, Asimina parviflora
We arrived to Watson Preserve mid-morning before the heat started setting in. And honestly, as I’m writing this two weeks later, it is much hotter and more humid now than it was then. Someone pulled in not long after we arrived, an older couple, who asked if we’d visited before. They didn’t stay long and I don’t even know that they saw the back part of the preserve with the bog!
We started off on the boardwalk that eventually winds itself down to parallel with Lake Hyatt. My Texas plant knowledge is far better than the first time I came here in 2011 so I recognized far more plants than I did back then, but looking back at my previous posts I gave it a good try!
Yellow Meadowbeauty, Rhexia lutea
I don’t remember this plant from last time and I had never seen one before (that I recall) but I am in love! Now I want to find seeds or some in the nursery trade (fat chance!) to add to the garden. They are so lovely!
I’ll leave the post with these lovely coneflowers which were planted adjacent to Geraldine’s house. Part II coming soon!
