White Hawkweed

White Hawkweed ~ Hieracium albiflorum

I guess I just like very simple things.

  1. Simple is often beautiful, as is this flower. I didn’t know there was white hawkweed!

    • I didn’t either until I got a close up photo of this one today and identified it. It seems to grow mostly in the western states, but also in Canada. The plant itself is very plain, but I love the tiny blossom. It uses much the same strategy as the Pathfinder: large leaves in a cluster at ground level and a tall, bare stem with tiny (<1/4 inch) blossoms at the top. The blossom looks inconsequential without magnification.

  2. I found one in the hill country that looks much like this — it’s called Pinaropappus roseus, or white dandelion. It’s larger, but has those toothy edges. They’re both simple, and lovely.

    • A white dandelion must be pretty. I had not heard of that before.

    • I like it when I can keep the background from being so busy that it detracts from the flower. This one is a delicate beauty!

    • I have been so thankful for cameras and lenses that enable us to see things like that.
