Native plant. The story goes that a tea from its roots cures snakebites (but I'm not sure how effective it is!). This one was growing in an island in a parking lot.
Many pictures in the database:

The plant sure does look cuter and friendlier than its name. Intriguing banner.

You did a great job capturing the intricate details of these spherical blooms. I see them in the wild occasionally, but more often in local gardens.

Lovely, and I like the celadon color. However, I have to admit, they also slightly remind me of a Covid virus…
