Glandularia bipinnatifida (Nuttall) Nuttall
By var., see Allred
Glandularia bipinnatifida has clusters of pink purple flowers at the ends of ascending branches. The corolla limbs are about the same length as the tube. The leaves are dissected and have linear segments. Glandularia bipinnatifida is very common and is found in open areas and on the roadside at middle elevation. It blooms early in the spring. The calyx is persistant and surrounds four nutlets that look like cigar butts at maturity.
