Capturing The Moment — Tufted Evening Primrose   Leave a comment

This image was first posted on March 16, 2013. At that time I thought the flower was that of a Tufted Evening Primrose. I now know is a rock hibiscus. The rock hibiscus is a small shrub, 1 1/2-3 ft. high, with tiny, fuzzy leaves which drop during periods of drought. — kenne

Tufted Evening Primrose — Image by kenne

I’m by no means a wildflower expert and the extreme conditions of the desert rocky slopes can make identification difficult. This beautiful wildflower was photographed midmorning in Kings Canyon at about 3,200′ elevation. My guess is that it is a tufted evening primrose, which blooms for only one night, pure white, turning to pink before closing by mid-day. If I have guessed wrong, please let me know.
