Info: Bloom / November 01, 2013 / Elephant Butte, NM / License: All rights reserved
Caption: very low growing plant, usually less than 6 or 7 inches and can be easy to overlook. Several sites give the bool-time as spring but I have seen it bloom after summer rains and this bloom is from Nov. 1st. Several other plants also had blooms.
