 It's the first Wildflower Wednesday of 2024 here on the Blog!  I am going to start the year off with one of my favorites that always makes me happy.  This is a Common Sunflower and our state flower of Kansas.  These bloom July though September and can grow to 12 feet high!  When actively growing the leaves and flower heads follow the path of the sun as it moves overhead.

Just a mention as we start the year off, there are pages on the Blog where I have the wildflowers I have seen and photographed here in Kansas listed by color to help identify the ones you may see as they start emerging.
