Kallstroemia grandiflora  Summer Poppy; Caltrop Poppy
ANNUAL.  A summer wildflower with fuzzy, pinnate leaves and poppylike bright orange flowers with red centers.  Hard, five-spined seeds are a reminder that this plant isn't a poppy at all, but is more closely related to Tribulus terrestris.  Grassy places, moist disturbed ground, roadsides.  Blooms in late summer in wet years, absent in dry years.
FAMILY:  Zygophyllaceae (Caltrop Family)
