Slide Index: 7189141204_95981b9144_o.jpg

Collection: Wildflower Center Digital Library
Original Format: Digital
Orientation: Portrait
Shot: Close-up of an inflorescence at anthesis. Photographer's Note: "There is some confusion on this one. Best as we can tell these are the staminate flowers of the oneseed bur cucumber. There are a couple of problems however. All the literature I could find says it is supposed to bloom in the late summer to early fall. Also, the greenish white corolla is supposed to have 5 spreading lobes not four. It is a weird year so who knows."
