Wild Cotton

All these gorgeous photos by Ned Harris 9/19/2014

Inquiring minds want to know why some Wild Cotton (aka Desert Cotton Gossypium thurberi) flowers are pink. The pink ones are 'old' flowers; they bloom white. Look for the fruits in the coming weeks. Wild Cotton is in the Mallow family (Malvaceae) and their very cool fruits have partitions for the seeds.
