Yellow Crownbeard – Native Wildflower of the Month

I thought I was going to need to put “term limits” on the Native Wildflower of the Month with Purple Passionflower getting the most visits for three months in a row, but in October, Yellow Crownbeard – Verbesina occidentalis – squeezed past with more visits in September, to reign during the month of October as the most popular plant on the site.

July 2010 Native Plant of the Month – Purple Passionflower

Based on the number of visits to the the wildflower detail pages in the month of July, the Purple Passionflower – Passiflora incarnata – repeats as the USWildflowers Native Wildflower of the Month for July, 2010.  Purple Passionflower has been far and away the most popular species on the site for the past two months, and to provide more variety here, if it repeats again, I may need to set term limits.
