What Kind of Flower Is This?

This is just a quick and simple post asking just one question: What kind of flower is this?

A Pretty Yellow Flower

I’ve tried to figure it out by looking at other pictures on the internet. It seems very much like a brown-eyed susan, but it’s missing the dark, dome-shaped center. Is it a daisy of some sort? I couldn’t find any pictures of flowers with exactly the same characteristics.

They were growing in a cluster down by the creek/wetlands just a short distance from our house.

So I’m turning to you for help. If you can identify this flower, please leave your comments. (Or even if you have a wild guess, I’ll take that too!)

  1. Looks like some type of Coreopsis to me.

    looks like an arrowleaf balsam to me. It has a lot of good uses.

  3. Barb says:

    It looks like “Prairie Sunflower” but I can’t quite see the leaves to confirm.

  4. Looks like some type of Arnica to me. Arnica does grow wild on the prairie and foothills in Alberta. Maybe Arnica fulgens?

  5. The leaves in the second picture do look like prairie sunflower leaves.

    I thought arnica at first, but prairie sunflower seems to make more sense.

    Looks like a day lilly on the wild side!

    almost looks like a jerusalem artichoke

    Shrugging my shoulders though – pretty

    Does anyone know what this is? It is growing near country road surrounded by vetch. It is about 2 ” in diameter and firm(somewhat like a popcorn ball. We live in VA and have fairly acid soil. Thanks!
