Krameria erecta Ratany
SUBSHRUB. A low, straggling, slightly woody herb with showy magenta
flowers in April. Flowers have a pouchlike lower lip that is fuzzy
and dark purplish on the outside. In the Empires, prefers bare, clayey,
gravelly soil in chaparral and among junipers, often just above dry washes.
K. grayi is similar but flower petals are narrower and the
lower lip is flat and pointed, not pouchlike.
