This is a gorgeous bloom, so exotic looking.
It's growing in a field near me.
I noticed today that they close up at night.
Anyone know what it is?
Sorry the pics aren't great at all-they were taken on my iPod.
Thanks a lot!

They grow wild all over the place here. You don't have posted where you are. I am in zone 9A-In the winter it will die to the ground, then the following year come back everywhere. I wish I had NEVER planted this in my yard. The pic appears to be the "wild" kind. There are some others not as invasive. Also, host to the Gulf Fritilliary butterfly. They will strip it in no time, which is good.
