Good catch, James!

Look what James found on our land northwest of Blanco! I'm so excited! This is a ratany (Krameria lanceolata), also called trailing krameria crameria, prairie sandbur, and trailing ratany. I think they're rather unusual. Last July, if you'll recall, I spotted one growing near Cross Mountain in Fredericksburg. Ratany is a member of the Krameriaceae (ratany) family. Go to, and you'll find only four species listed.
