    Default A few wildflower i.d.'s please

    Here are a few wildflowers from the great state of Texas that I need help with there I.D. And if the bees work them or not. My "Wildflowers of Texas" book is on the way just not here yet. Also, Dragonfly if you reads this. What about broom weed for the bees.

    First is the most abundant. I am covered up in this.





    Tons of this but not as much as the above. I think this may be Golden Rod. Though its not blooming yet.





    Last but not least. Not a ton of this but its blooming.

    The first picture is Snow-On-the-Mountain, not sure how much the bees work it. It is in the milkweed family.
    The second one, I'm not sure, but I'm guessing Mare's Tail, and that's probably not the real name - just what us Okies call it.
    The third one is not something that I've seen growing on these plains.
    Sunflowers are just now starting to bloom, ironweed is blooming, haven't seen any goldenrod yet, but I've got plenty of ragweed, yuk.

    Thanks. The Sunflowers have been blooming here for 3-4 weeks now. We got about a .25 inch of rain 4 days ago and the plants I posted really grew. If I would have taken those pics last Sunday they would not look near as good. Wish I could get a inch or 5.

    Derek, glad to know what they are. I didn't recognize it, but that's probably because I don't have any I've planted lots of goldenrod seeds, but they don't seem to do well in this area.
    So many weeds.......so little time.
