Scarlet Pimpernel - Anagallis arvensis

Scarlet Pimpernel – Anagallis arvensis


Fond of moisture, this little (6-9″) plant was found in a meadow near Brushy Creek in Williamson County. The flowers are small, less than half an inch across, so you’re unlikely to see them if you’re riding a bicycle down the regional trail or jogging. It takes a sharp-eyed group of native plant enthusiasts to spot them down under the gaillardia and other flowers.
