Silverhead - Blutaparon vermiculare by Bob Peterson
Tiny blossoms of the silverhead plant. This wonderful species lives happily in pure quartz sand along intracoastal and ocean beaches. It survives close to the high tide line, much like sea purslane, and is sometimes inundated by saltwater. I have been watching this particular plant for several months and it’s pollinators have primarily been a small fly and emerald-green halictid bees.
