Dandelions, daisies, buttercups

A survey of common weedflowers in Isla Vista, California:




None of them are native plants. (More about buttercups.)

What are the weedflowers in your area? Show me! You have an exception from this assignment if you live here too.

How do you determine if a flower is a weedflower or if it's just a regular wildflower?

They're beautiful! The dandelion is one of my favorite plants and also a common weed around here, as are the buttercups. I, too, used to eat them (as "sour grass") as a kid.

i guess weedflowers are unwanted and wildflowers are wanted. if it's non-native, it's probably a weedflower.
