Hello, I think we may be seeing more of the Sleepy Orange Butterflies. I should keep trying to find the name of this wildflower and plant it as ground cover if it isn’t noxious. The butterflies love it, and it’s hardy enough to endure cold night temps in the twenties and still thrive and bloom in January as soon as the afternoons warm up. The butterflies and wildflowers are amazingly resilient!
It is nice to get the additional photo to supplement the image you sent in December of a Sleepy Orange. We will request assistance with the plant identification from our readership.
