I was checking my popcorn. I wanted to see how well the ears were filling out. I looked to the ground and saw this flower. It's very nice. If I could find more, I would like to cultivate them. Does anyone know its name?
Mum thinks its a bellflower. Spanish bellflower maybe? Stumped.
I thought it was maybe a bellflower, too. I sent a picture to my ag agent. He thinks it's a bellflower, too.
I think it is a Campanula pyramidalis.
The blue one is blue eyed grass and the white flowers remind me of phlox. I am more certain of the blue flowers than the white ones. Hope that helps.
These lovely purple/blue flowers are called Sisyrinchium- Blue Eyed Grass . The Pale Yellow - Sisyrinchium Striatum- Yellow eyed grass or Satin Flower! These 2 beauties are in the same family!
I saw this weird plant/seed pod hiking in the woods in Allegany State Park, in western NY near the PA border. Can anyone identify it?
This is Phytolacca americana. It is most commonly known as pokeweed and is a perenial.
I see these beautiful orange flowers by the highway. What are they and how can I get some to plant?
By Janis A McKiddy from Williamsburg, KY
There's a good chance they are California Poppies (even though they are not really poppies). You can get the seeds online from wildflower seed sites. We sometimes have them along our highways in Washington State too. Do they look like this?
They could also be what I've called Jewel weed. Look something like sedum. I stopped and dug some in VA but not sure if it's legal in Kentucky to dig wild flowers.
They look like this.
They're Tiger Lilies and they come in all different shades but the orange and yellow seem to be the most popular.Here in Maryland they'll pop up in the oddest of places.I don't know if the birds propagate them or how they get there.There will be a whole field of weeds and 1 or 2 will pop up in amongst them.
I'm sorry I should have said where you can get them.Any garden center should have them.You could also check with Lowe's or Home Depot.Seed catalogs also have them some of them are Burpee,Wayside Gardens,Spring Hill nurseries and Park are just a few and I think the most popular.If you go to there websites you can order their catalogs for free.
These are not tiger lilies just lilies. They don't have the stripes, like tiger lilies.
These are some of the flowers I see on my social distancing walks in the neighborhood. Some of them I recognize more or less, but am hoping for more specific information.
Thanks for your help. Keep safe.
This is called Hairy Bittercress Weed - this weed produces flowers , that releases seeds in the air producing more weeds . It over takes lawns.
Thanks - while pretty probably not one I want to add to my yard.
that white clover is the only one we see along these parts
that red clover is better known as crimson clover; the plain old red clover looks just like the white, but red. The crimson becomes conical like that. The seeds can be edible, and the flowers can be tea.
that first white one I've seen it a lot - it could actually be catnip

Thank you for your help. I love the crimson clover and was thinking of digging up a plant or two for my yard. I am not a fan of the raggedy lawn I have and don't like fertilizers, so I am adding clover and hopefully the small English daisies that come in some grass mixes.
Its hard to see your picture, it could be Slender bush clover. Check with your state's Conservation for a book of wildflowers. Good Luck.
It looks like Ajuga-Bugleweed. Your picture is kind of dark. Look up Ajuga and compare for your self. jjs
I can't tell for sure without seeing the leaves better. But it could be pentsemon/pentsamon. Google and compare.
