Wildflowers Along The Way


Sharing a gallery of wildflowers I’ve discovered while exploring South Dakota’s Badlands and Black Hills.

I did my best to ID most of the flowers, and had help from Tom and Eliza in my comments, thanks!ย  Please correct any I may have identified incorrectly, I appreciate it!

  1. There’s a phone app called LeafSnap. You either take a photo of the plant or upload an already existing one and it will identify the plant for you.

  2. Lovely collection. By the way, for the flowers you haven’t been able to identify, have you try Bing Visual Search. You upload the picture of the flower you have taken and then Bing finds similar flowers that have been identified. I have been able to identify a number of wild flowers that way recently. It works miracle. (Suzanne)

  3. Lovely collection! Love the pretty, delicate-looking wild woods rose, native to North America. (The wild beach roses we have around here aren’t native and are invasive, even though they are beautiful.) I find indentifying wildflowers more challenging than identifying birds! Thanks for letting us see samples from a different botanical range.

    • Thank you, Barbara! I love seeing a wildflower pushing up and blooming, making sure it gets its turn to smile for us. ๐Ÿ™‚ I didn’t know about wildflower ID links until mentioned by other commenters, where you can upload your photo and it IDs. I tried the links and they all work well! Going to use them from now on. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. That’s a nice project you gave yourself while in SD … and a great collection! I went on a great photo trip to both areas a couple of years ago, the last week in May. The Badlands were unusually green.
