Noob question. Smiling
These pop up around here every spring and I can't seem to identify it! I hope the question has not been asked toooo many times . . . . . .
In Louisiana, and I also saw them on the Natchez Trace in South Mississippi. Late April/Early May.
Along the roadside, contrasting nicely with the Red Clover. Low to the ground, and thick enough to add some nice color to a fairly large area.
In my yard as well, I would like to look at seeding certain areas of my yard if possible, but just have failed to find anything that looks quite right.
Thanks!!
