#1 pollinator favorite! This annual forms large, dense colonies along the roadsides and in pastures throughout all of Texas. It can grow up to 5 feet tall and in the early summer it blooms into solitary flower heads 2 to 3½ inches in diameter. The blooms are a beautiful pink, with a creamy center. They make interesting cut flowers, and are suitable for dried flower arrangements as well. This is a showy, easily cultivated wildflower.
