Week 2 of wildflowers continues…
I have no idea the name of this flower. I found it along the highway in Oklahoma. I think it is very pretty. Sadly once I started looking at the photos I realized I didn’t have a very good picture of them. But hopefully someone (Midwestern Plant Girl) will be able to identify this lovely flower.
Oh the pressure! 😉
I’ve narrowed it down to two things. The leaves were hard for me to pick out, but these two plants also have similar leaves. Vicia Americana – American Vetch or Lathyrus vernus – Spring Pea. I think I’m going to lean towards the vetch. Final answer!
Don’t know if you are a smartphone/app user, however there are many really easy ID apps out there. The one I use a bunch (and what helped me with this challenge) is the ‘Minnesota Wildflowers’ app. I just did a quick search for Texas apps and there are a few! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sutromedia.android.guide.flowers.etx
However, why do you need an app, when you have me?!?! HaHaHa!!
Enjoy your weekend, Tree!!
A good point you make….you are my app!! However I do like to solve the flower mystery on my own when possible. Since I am an iPhone user I will check out the apps….thank you my friend!!
I hope your weekend is good as well.
Hmmm, not too many plants out here in the dry west, but it looks a little like foxglove: http://ethnobotany09.providence.wikispaces.net/Foxglove
