Common in wet areas
Local name = Creeping spotflower.
Was happy to spot this plant today at Lake Creek trail. I recognized it from a nearby observation made last month by @gcwarbler.
Interesting that the only Texas records for this plant on iNat at this time are 3 that are within a half mile of each other. Happy to note that mine represents the westernmost US iNat observation. :-)
In sunny area.
I almost overlooked this CYC in the wetlands along the Lake Creek Trail, thinking it was a Wedelia growing out of place. I'm glad I documented it; it is apparently only the 2nd Williamson County report, at the western edge of the species range. New to me.
