pawprint Here are a few big ones that need ID

Pix 13,14,16 all the same plant the thing is 7' tall and is growing in a sunny spot in the woods. I have seen the leaves in shadier places in the woods and it doesn't grow nearly as tall, nor does it bloom in the shade. Errrrr~ummm I guess it blooms, those buds, I have yet too see one that opened. (maybe it is a night time bloomer) hahaha

Do not become distracted by the slippery elm playing with the grapevine hola hoop in the background of pix 016!

Pix 011 & 012 What's Blooming Now 2013-midaugust2013-011.jpgare also a very What's Blooming Now 2013-midaugust2013-012.jpgtall plant 6' in the same sunny location, but this one has these big yellow flowers, and neat looking leaves.

WW - you have some plants that are unfamiliar to me. The white flowered plant looks to be some type of Eupatorium that bloom now. Try Yellow Leafcup for the first two above, Smallanthus uvedalius. It's also known as Bear's Foot because of the large lobed leaves.

WW - your blue flowered plant could be Campanula americana, Tall Bellflower.

pawprint Don't worry I'm logging these names in my journal

Hi Linrose, your such a life saver! tytyty for the accurate suggested ID's I think your right on the mark with the Campanula americana, (tall bellflower), mine are not really that tall, maybe 3' tall, but I'm now very confident in the ID you suggested.

Also the Smallanthus uvedalius, (Yellow Leafcup/ Bear's Foot) is a happy & accurate ID surprise for me.

As for the white flowered, possibility -Eupatorium- I'm going to try researching that one further, as my lower leaves I shown in pix 14 are much different than what I am finding on the internet. I will post, if I ever figure it out. One thing for sure about these white flowers is that the butterflies love it, I counted about 5 dancing around the flowers.

I think I should use my wife's camera today, and perhaps I can get some better pictures, especially of that unnamed white flowered plant. I also noted that the stem/leaves hold that white milky sap, so I'm thinking it is some kind of 'wild lettuce'.

Sigh~~~I'm not having much ID luck using the names Eupatorium, or Latuca

We've had a hot dry stretch of weather, temps in the 90s. The gardens are looking a bit worse for wear but there are a few bloomers.

And of course the ever present, ever spreading, brown-eyed susans.

From this morning in the field. I'm hoping the thistle is Cirsium discolor, our native Field Thistle.
