On June 24th, I took a quick (two hours) jaunt to the LBJ grasslands. I had run across a parasitic plant in the flora. I was curious if I could locate a specimen. Currently it is not on any list I have for this area. I was not successful this time. Notice I said this time? I will certainly will have my eyes open for it now! The plant is Pilostyles thurberi and it is only found on Black Dalea (Dalea frutescens). My morning, however, was still very successful and fun!
I will share two more finds from June 24th in another post. I brought them both home to study closer. 🙂
