Another new wildflower for me … Scurfy Pea (Psoralidium tenuiflorum), from Snowball Hill Prairie. Resembling a large, bushy weed, the Scurfy Pea grows to about 4-feet tall and has abundant small purple pea-like flowers. The Scurfy Pea has been blooming on this prairie for the past few weeks and will likely be fading out very soon. Here are a few of my favorite images:
Coming up … more wildflowers from the area.
