These are the interesting new flowers of a native male <b>Veatch Silk-Tassel</b> (<i>Garrya veatchii</i>) shrub in the <b>Silk-Tassel</b> (<i>Garryaceae</i>) plant family. The strange flowers hang like pearls on a thread! (San Marcos Pass, 10 January 2010)
This native shrub is "dioecious" with separate male and female plants. The flowers of this particular shrub will only produce pollen.
My photo-friend Lynn Watson has a nice page about this native plant at:

MYKOLOGOS is a group site for photos of mushrooms, fungi, molds, lichens, slime molds, bacterial mats, algae - all those non-flowering plants that don`t follow the usual rules. I figure ferns are marginal unless they show their sporangia.
Photos of flowers, plants, bugs, animals, birds, landscape, geology or whatever nature gives you room to breathe. Please be as informative or descriptive as you can about what a plant, animal or rock is. To me, education about nature is a strong part of knowing nature.
