Florida Panhandle in 2008

Return to the Trip Overview

Yellow flowers:
And thusly, Brian and I started a long, long search for Pinguicula pumila along the roadsides. Unfortunately, all that Brian could remember was that he had found the small and inconspicuous plants at a stop he had made to admire the nice yellow flowers of Pinguicula lutea. So our search strategy was to drive until we saw P. lutea in flower, and then stop and inspect them for elusive Pinguicula pumila.

As you can see, there were many P. lutea flowers, and the ground was densely spangled with a species of violet (Viola sp.) with flowers precisely the same color and size of Pinguicula pumila. We stopped a lot!
