Wildflower Wednesday


These are wildflowers planted around the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT) in Fort Worth. 

 Winecup, also known as poppy mallow (Callirhoe), is a beautiful silky wildflower 
blooming during the middle of the spring season in our 7b hardiness zone. 
The sun was very bright when I took these photographs. 

While many of the wildflowers grow en masse, here is what I believe to be a single Tradescantia virginiana. 

Spiderwort Tradescantia

Bluebonnets and evening primrose
The sun has washed out the vibrant colors visible in the 
bluebonnets and evening primrose in my photo. 


I plant my milkweed specifically for the Monarch butterfly
 making sure to use no pesticides.

Join Gail at Clay and Limestone for Wildflower Wednesday.
