Isn't this just a bizarre-but-cool wildflower? This is growing in our area right now, and I picked some on my walk this morning. The variety in my neighborhood has more white blossoms where this one has pink on the tops of each segment. This flower reminds me of a wedding cake. It is one of my favorite Texas wildflowers. It dries very well and can be used in dried flower arrangments.
