Triphysaria eriantha

Triphysaria eriantha

Another member of the broomrape family today, Triphysaria eriantha is known commonly as Johnnytuck or butter and eggs. These annual plants can be found throughout most of California and parts of southwest Oregon. Calphotos has additional images, including photographs of the plants in habitat: Triphysaria eriantha.


What a beautiful photo- contrasts of color, focus, texture, linearity vs mass, A world in a flower.

We Marylanders call Linaria vulgaris butter-and-eggs, or sometimes toadflax.

What a wonderful image! I love the lush feel of it, almost 3-D. The petals look thick. Are they?

We have another species here in Saskatchewan called "Butter and Eggs" viz. Linaria vulgaris http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linaria_vulgaris
