bown eyed susanBlack-Eyed Susan.  It seems that it has multiple medicinal uses.   I think this one was in the mix of wildflowers we tried to sow.  This and the Blanket Flower below were the only takers.

burnweedBurnweed, erechtites hieraciifolia.  Possibly edible, possibly permanent liver damage. Must be in large quantities.  Seems to have medicinal uses galore.

gaillardiaBlanket Flower.  I think this one came from the wildflower seed packet.  Some say you can use the seeds for medicinal purposes, but the plant can make you itchy.
morning gloryMorning glory. Mega bad. Aw, but I love it. Also, became popular with druggies for a while for the seeds LSD similarities.
pictures 103Horse Nettle, Solanum carolinense.b   Berries toxic in large quantities.  Obnoxious spines.  Ouchy. Impossible to get rid of without pre-emergent.  Whoops.  I have lots.

I am not sure why I can never get my weeds under control but the neighbors Gardner manages to get the perfect lawn with no weeds. I am suspecting he uses heavy doses of chemicals and diligent weeding.

Have had wild petunia growing in my yard for years – could not identify it and friends kept telling me it was “just a weed and dig it up”. But loved the little blue flowers. Finally, this year was able to identify. So now my friends ask about my “wild flower” not my weed.
