Pink Evening Primrose - Oenothera speciosa

Pink Evening Primrose – Oenothera speciosa


This shot was taken at Champion Park in southern Williamson County, along the Brushy Creek Regional Trail. In the morning we had attended a plant taxonomy class in which we learned that the distinguishing feature for the family that Oenothera speciosa is the “X marks the spot” of the pistils, shown fairly clearly here. Excellent learning, when the theoretical is followed immediately by practical application.
