Artist's Description

This is a common wildflower that lives in disturbed or waste areas where there is loads of sunshine. The plants can reach three feet high, and the flowers look very much like a dandelion. The seeds, too resemble the dandelion. The flowers are yellow, open in the morning and close by afternoon. Common names for this wildflower include Yellow Salsify, and it is found in 45 of our 50 United States and parts of Canada.

This picture was taken at Green Lane Reservoir in an open field – Red Hill, Pennsylvania, USA, on October 18, 2012.
