Goat's Rue Flowering 6670

From the Diamond Grove Prairie southeast of Joplin, Missouri, that I visited on June 4, here are two more native wildflowers. The first is Tephrosia virginiana, known as goat’s rue. The second is Orbexilum pedunculatum, called Sampson’s snakeroot. You can see that both are in the legume family.

Thanks again to Scott Lenharth for taking us to this prairie and for identifying the plants there.
