Hi! This plant was found in Albuquerque, NM in 2 neighbor's yards. It has vibrant pink flowers that are made up of "petals" that have 3 sides, contain a seed in the middle, are paper-thin, and lose their color as the flower dies off. It grows to maybe a foot off the ground, making a nice pop of color to an open area. Does anyone know what this is called?
