Desmodium rosei / Pea Family
Las Cruces, NM (Organ Mountains)
Oct. 4, 2008
This plant grew very thickly in the fields at the base of the Organ Mountains. I seemed to be a "magnet" for sticky seeds, after each hike I had to pull many seeds off my pants and bootlaces. The coverings of the seeds have tiny Velcro-like hooks that stick to fabric or animals' fur.
