July 26 — The Lousewort Family
Decades ago, botanists lacked knowledge necessary to assign some plants to natural families. As a result, some wildflowers were temporarily assigned to families on the basis of superficial resemblances with the provision that new knowledge would prompt reassignment. Thus have familiar wildflowers such as paintbrushes and “little red elephants” been assigned to families different from those in the field guides.
