Bitterweed

A field of yellow sunshine, even though it’s called a weed!

Bitterweed
Bitterweed | September 11 | Chassahowitzka WMA

Started blooming late August and into September. These wildflowers are thriving in open sandy areas.

Fun fact: The Plant Atlas has a sample of this flower picked by J. D. Ray Jr. on October 14, 1959 along U.S 41  what was then called Chinsegut Wildlife Refuge.
