yellow stingbush, Eucnide bartonioides

Yellow stingbush only occurs near the Rio Grande in the Big Bend area of Texas. That makes me really appreciate gardens. As wonderful an area as Big Bend must be, I can't picture it ever getting to the top of my list of places to be. Too many other more floriferous places, and too little time. On the other hand, since they've got two-inch beauties like this, maybe I'll have to head that way. And then be careful not to get stung. Beal Gardens, MSU, 9/7/16.
