25. Agoseris glauca, Mountain Dandelion
There are just a few of these on the slope
behind the house.
26. Oryzopis hymenoides, Indian Rice Grass
This was a species that we processed as part of the decomposition project at the Long Term Ecological Research Station. The samples were taken from the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge. The work was done at the labs in Albuquerque.
Some people also call this a purple daisy.
28. Lactuca canadensis, Wild Lettuce.
The leaves are edible when young, but the stem contains a bitter, milky latex that ruins cow's milk.
This one is growing among:
29. Phlox divaricata, White Phlox or Sweet William.
I think that these are volunteers left over from the previous owner's gardening.
Happy plant hunting where you are!
