Plains Yellow Daisy or Four-Nerve Daisy

Kirby Wildflowers: This is Plains Yellow Daisy or Four-Nerve Daisy. A perennial and member of the sunflower family. What looks like a "flower" is really a collection of smaller flowers or florets; so maybe you're seeing about 50-75 tiny flowers in the first image, each with a complete set of male and female parts. Seems strange but that's the way flowers work in the sunflower family. This photo was from late February of last year. I am on the lookout for this to start blooming very soon now at Kirby! #DoctorBot #LakeKirby
