Brown-eyed Primrose

Sunday, March 7, 2010
This common ephemeral (look that word up in the dictionary!) loves sandy soils from dunes to washes.  Look carefully as it is a favorite food of the white-lined sphinx moth.  The caterpillars feed on the leaves and the adult moths feed on the flowers.  This poor plant doesn't stand a chance!
