Argemone polyanthemos - White Prickly Poppy

Argemone polyanthemos – White Prickly Poppy

This lovely flower sports sharp prickles, hence the name. More showy than the Bull Nettle, it blossoms a little earlier, too. This particular specimen was taken near Champion Park on the Brushy Creek Regional Trail, where the Native Plant Society of Texas Williamson County chapter will be hosting a field trip on May 19th.
