This seed puff is from a Desert Chicory Rafinesquia neomexicana (the white flower under and next to it).Yes, it really is Desert Chicory.
This is from a Silverpuff Uropappus lindleyi (dandelion-like pale yellow flower). They do look similar, but the Silverpuff seed puff really does look silvery when you see it in the light.
Do you know how to tell the difference between tack stem and desert chicory? Always something I've struggled with! :-)ReplyDelete
