In marsh at Cibolo Nature Center
I climbed down into Walnut Creek to explore off the path and found some new things.
Beautiful patches of mistflower blooming on the banks of a park pond.
Commonly blooming out in the forest clearings.
Growing on roadsides bordering the Lake.
Conoclinium coelestinum, the blue mistflower, is a species of herbaceous perennial flowering plant in the family Asteraceae. It was formerly classified in the genus Eupatorium, but phylogenetic analyses in the late 20th century research indicated that that genus should be split, and the species was reclassified in Conoclinium.
