Another Spiderling

Photo by Ned Harris, 9/8/11
A bumper crop of Bush Spiderlings (Commicarpus scandens) this year! The greenish-white flowers are tiny and easily overlooked. Get as close as this bee for the best view.
A note about plant names: I use Joan Tedford's latest list of the plants of Sabino Canyon for the scientific as well as the common names. Occasionally, I add a common name that is not on her list (because I like it better). You may encounter a different Latin name in books or on other sites; if so, you can be sure that Joan's is the most current.
