I Think I Know What Some of My Wildflowers Are Now

And New Flower Photos for The Week Ending September 15, 2018

 

David bought some more boxes of the wildflower mix so I was able to get the names of the flowers in it. I had to take to the internets to find the common names as the scientific names were given on the box.

These are  Calendula Officinalis -pot marigolds .

 

These little yellow and orange ones are Coreopsis Tinctoria – golden tickseed.

 

The ones I was calling impatiens were actually a poppy variety.

The smaller ones are Papaver Rhoeas – common, rose, corn field, flander’s or red poppy.

 

The larger poppies are Eschscholzia californica– california poppy.

 

These are Rudbeckia Hirta – black-eyed Susan which are in the sunflower family.

 

This late bloomer was Cynoglussum Amabile – Chinese forget-me-not or hound’s-tongue.

 

The other late bloomer was Delphinium Consolida – forking,rocket or field larkspur.

 

I had no problem identifying the cosmos or the bachelor buttons. The tiny white flowers you see in a lot of the photos turned out to be baby’s breath.
