Well how fun! You have some very nice pictures, TommyDaDelaware! Nice job! Love how you use the Latin name for correct and absolute identification. :)

Some of these I took, the rest my husband. We are very much into the native plants in our area. We even have our very own website dedicated to plant identification in our area! Wahoo!


Asclepias asperula - Milkweed


Datura stramonium (? not 100% on the species ?) - Jimson Weed


Thermopsis montana - Golden Banner - with Annabelle


Ipomopsis aggregata - Scarlet Gilia


Iris missouriensis - Blue Flag


Yucca bacata - Yucca - flowers


Penstemon barbatus - Scarlet Bugler


Phaecelia sericea - Purple Fringe


Chamerion danielsii - Fireweed


Gentiana parryi - Fringed Gentian


Amelanchier alnifolia - Serviceberry


Aquilegia elegantula - Western Red Columbine


Calypso bulbosa - Fairy Slipper

Oh, just wondering (and I'm sorry if I'm nit-picking!!! ) but is that last picture Chrysothamnus, not Castilleja? Again, sorry if I sound pompous!

Thanks for starting a nice thread!

yeah. Well most of my wildflower pictures have been taken when I visit my Grandma in Central Wyoming. Here In WI we don't have the Sego Lily or Bistorts. But apparently we do have a species of Indian Paintbrush.
