Of the many pretty wildflowers around here, the Argemone albiflora is a showstopper. It towers above the others, reaching heights up to five feet (though averaging closer to half that). While sporting a palm-sized (4-6 inches across) white inflorescence. Pollinators adore it but most herbivores eschew the pokey stem. The plant was valued by Native Americans for its many medicinal uses and the oil from the seeds was used as a lubricant during WWII.
