Desert Fivespot


aka lantern flower
Eremalche rotundifolia

Desert fivespot is no less spectacular for being rather common. It’s an annual that can stand up to two feet tall, and is found in lower elevations in Death Valley. The flowers close at night and re-open the next day.

I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
