Spring Flowers, Tucson, Part 3: Lil White Bells (Arizona Jewelflower)

The Arizona or Lyreleaf Jewelflower, Streptanthus carinatus ssp. arizonicus (link to Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower center). Apparently these also come in green, but sadly I’ve not seen any green ones.

Speaking of green flowers, I stumbled into this gorgeous flower while I was looking for the ID for these: Desert elkweed (Frasera albomarginata) (link to americansouthwest.net).

Check out the other pictures I’ve posted of Tucson’s bloom this spring:
