Wildflower Wednesday, October 25, 2017

On the fourth Wednesday of each month we celebrate Wildflower Wednesday!

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, September 7, 2017
Isn't this a pretty wildflower? You may not like it so much when you know that it is...

Desmodium - Beggars Lice! It has been called Nature's Velcro for the seed's ability to stick
to anything that it comes in contact with.

From the shape of its leaves, I think this is Desmodium canescens, Hoary Tick Trefoil. As a member of the Pea family, it is a valuable plant for maintaining wildlife habitat.

Happy Wildflower Wednesday!
