“There is poetry among the wildflowers.” — Rachel Irene Stevenson
Cream milkvetch, Astragalus racemosus appears to be native to Texas. This species was seen at Tahoka Lake Pasture. It loves being near a water source for it to bloom and grow.
Their stems are deep red and are very similar to Snow-on-the-Mountain. At first, I thought I was looking at a hybrid of Russain Thistle. This plant flowers from May to June the flowers are super soft with a creamy white color.
A couple of neat aspects of this plant. Clouded Sulphur butterflies love this plant. It accumulates selenium from the soil.
Happy Wildlife Wednesday.
