Kirby Wildflowers in Bloom

Kirby Wildflowers in Bloom: The common name is Crow Poison or False Garlic. You can find this plant throughout most of Texas and it is one of our most abundant and widespread native plants. As a member of the Lily family, the plants have an onion-like bulb. I love the delicate beauty of the flowers of this perennial plant species. The scientific name is Northoscordum bivalve. The first part of the name is Greek: Nothos means false and scordon means garlic! #DoctorBot #LakeKirby
