Erigonum cernuum Nutt.
An annual herb native with branched woody stems and densely hairy, basal
leaves. Small flowers and petals absent or similar in color. Flower parts appear
mostly in multiples of three, and each flower produces a single grain-kike seed,
or achene. Flower parts are very small and form dense single or multiple
umbrella like clusters. Each small flower has three sepals and three petals,
which are usually similar in size, structure, and color, and nine stamens. Grows
at elevations between 4200 to 11 feet.
