Echeandia texensis 'Loma del Potrero Cercado'
Fall-blooming perennial native to the Rio Grande valley in southwestern Texas. Winter-dormant, the foliage returns in spring and stays as a green grassy rosette until autumn, when slender flowering stems shoot up lined with yellow blooms with recurved petals. Except that one of our second-year plants decided to bloom in early May. We'll see if it unconfuses itself by season's end.
|Early-May bloom – an act of confusion? |
In our garden, this plant grows in the following areas: foundation border, left fence border, right-fence nursery area

- Seed from NARGS '17/'18 exchange. Baggy 70F (8%G, 13-17d) - 70F with light (32%G, 18-32d)
Unclear if it was the light or simply the progression of time that resulted in the second flush of germination. In any case, patience is warranted.
