    Went over to Brushpiles this morning to get some treetubes and found a few wildflowers that we needed an I.D. for. Here's the first one.

    I think #1 is alfalfa. Not sure, but appears to be a legume.

    Agreed that #2 is a vetch of some flavor I'm still learning the different ones. #3 is rough fruited cinquefoil. I think #6 is foxglove beardtongue.

    4, and 5, I'll need to do some searching. Never seen anything like #5 before. Wonder if its a landscaping plant that escaped.

    I dont think 1 is alfalfa Dano. No.5 was growing a mile down the road from my house on a South facing slope that was somewhat glady. Probably 5 or 6 different ones growing that I could see from the road.

    I think I'm spent. Looked through a couple websites and didn't find any other matches.

    Guess it could be, but I was looking at the leaf configuration. Looks like a trifoliate on the picture you have above. Didn't see any pics of spring larkspur with a trifoliate. Just doesn't quite seem like it.

    No. 5 is an evening primrose they are kind of a neat glades area plant. They bloom in the evenings and if you are there at the right time you can watch them bloom.

    Well these plants must have been transplanted from somewhere back east as they were about 6 hours or so early:D. It was about noon when I spotted them.

    They stay bloomed through the night most times you see them during the day and they are starting to droop a little. There are a lot of them on the glades down on the gladetop trail and other mark twain national forest right now.
