A-D    E-L    M-R    S-Z    Cactus    Unidentified

The purposes for this gallery are several:
  • to share all the cool wildflowers I've encountered
  • to provide photos large enough to see small details
  • to provide viewers a way  to identify these wildflowers
  • to help me identify the plants I don't know
  • to help me continue to learn and remember the names
  • to show the artistry of flowers

 I have listed the flowers by their common name. At some point I may make an index that lets you pick th image by name. The format I have used lets you scroll through the photos without having to do a lot of clicking.  I have added to  and corrrected many of the names. There are still some that I haven't identified.  If you see any that are not correct, please let me know.
The scientific names are in italics. When multiple names are listed, they are synonyms that are no longer in current use.

As you learn to idientify the different species of flowers you will come to realize that all those yellow (or what ever color) flowers are not the same. Try to learn about 4 new flowers each time you venture out and before long you will know quite a few.

Special thanks to Al Schneider for his help with the names.

Special thanks to Chick Keller also, for his help with more of the names.

Some of the photos do not meet my standards for quality.  I'm posting them anyway because they are the only shots I have and some of the flowers may be very rare and I may never see them again. They will be replaced as I take new images. All of these photos have been taken with very small digital cameras. Focusing these cameras on flowers can be very difficult and has taken lots of practice and experimenting.

You may notice some of the entries are now out of sequence.  I am redoing this gallery in a new format which will allow you to view the flowers by common name or botanical name.
