It's Wildflower Wednesday on the Blog once again. This is another new one for the Wild Flower Pages for this year but one I probably have photographed without realizing which type it was. It's quite a lovely specimen and the one that is the state flower of Kansas. This is a Common Sunflower. They usually start blooming in July and can be found through October. They are an annual and spread by their seeds if birds don't get them first. All Sunflowers are part of the Aster Family.
