Grows wild in a few states. Here is a close-up.
Is it Epilobium angustifolium
No, very cold, not fireweed.
reminds me more of the blooming Euphorbias...
No, still cold.
Plant was growing in the shade. I doubt if anyone is familiar with this one, but any ideas on the family?
No, not that family either. The flowers are much smaller than the tip of your finger.
Looks like everyone is dogged by this one. Here is the whole plant growing on a log.
Hm-hm... really not easy... :(((
Yes, that is the correct family.
Yes, a Texas native.
No, not a scaleseed. Leaves are different.
HINT: All of the words (or forms of the words) of the common name have been in my previous posts.
Oh shoot, forget that. Wrong family.
Try Dog fennel, Foeniculum vulgare
Stupid common names....
Nope, I never used the word "fennel".
Finger dogshade Cynosciadium digitatum.
That's the crossword-puzzler in me speaking.
That's it. Congratulations!
Wouldn't have got it without the hint, as you are probably all well aware.
Good stumper, thank you.
Hm... Cynosciadium digitatum... learned something new again! :) Thanks!
I knew it would be difficult, and one most people haven't seen. The plant was growing out of an old log in the Sabine River bottom Big Foot territory, has tiny flowers, and is the only one I have ever found.
