Wasatch Wildflower Series - 5

Rudbeckia hirta var., the popular Black-Eyed Susan.  Family Asteraceae.  Cultivated in gardens all over the world.  These were photographed by my son Thomas, as his shadow shares the glory.

Astragalus utahensis. Utah Milkvetch. Family Fabaceae. Extracts are used for medicine. Also known generally as "locoweed", it can have toxic effects on browsing livestock.
