 It's Wildflower Wednesday here on the Blog!  Today's flower is Lead Plant.  Lead Plant blooms June through August.  It is a native legume and it's roots can go as deep as 16 feet making it quite drought tolerant!  It's name comes from silvery grey hairs on the plant that give it it's lead color.


  1. ANother one I don't think we have here. The petals (if you call them that) are quite different for a flower (But I am sure there are others with petals along that line - these ones remind me of evergreen needles)

    1. Yes, they are a rather unique one. I have never examined them very closely but they seem like tiny I'll have to check them out more this summer.
