Pink mimosa

Like a lot of native wildflowers, these are going bonkers this year. According to our book, a “an erect, tortured-looking shrub”. Kristin and I agree it deserves a better description. We’ve decided to call it a “pink volcano” or a “fluffy pink sea urchin”.

Keep your eye out for the corresponding common name update in Wildflowers of the Texas Hill Country (M. Enquist).
