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.
