This is one of the largest families of plant usually called by many DAISIES. We see them all time many will grow without aid of man. We than called wildflowers. I found hard to name their botanical names but did to try to learn theirs genera names. (a botanical name is the genera and speices) I have held its post until I had time to do more sstuding. I could be wrong.

Note: All these plants have petal on the outside and  a center circle that has many individual plants and which will produce the seed

Rudbeckia hirta, commonly called black-eyed Susan

Echinacea purpurea

 Members of the Asteraceae
Gaillarda aristata


I am rather proud of the subspecies does occur in nature but is seldom seen. It likes less water than the common blanket flower. Both are short-lived perennials. This was growing Idaho.

Growing in my Pasco, Washington garden. The pink flower is St Anthony

The following all members of this family
