Blazing Star

The Blazingstar Mentzelia laevicaulis shows up in early August along  roadsides and other disturbed areas. Its brilliant yellow shows up best in early morning. The blossoms last about a day and are replaced by new ones the next morning. It hardly seems possible that this plant should thrive in such harsh dry environment.
