Several years ago the Chattanooga Valley Church of the Nazarene generously opened a walking track next to a creek on their property in Flintstone, Georgia and made it available to the public. My wife and I take advantage of that track from time to time, and have been surprised and pleased by how many wildflowers grow in the area. Yesterday was a beautiful day, so we walked the track, and I went back later to photograph the wildflowers. Here are a dozen native species blooming now along the track.
Among the first wildflowers you notice along the creek is Green-headed Coneflower.
Virginia Dayflower, a native species, has been added to the USWildflowers database (09/30/2012.) Scientific name is Commelina virginica. Photo below was taken in Walker County, GA on Sep 26, 2012. Go to the Virginia Dayflower detail page for more photos and information.
