Meadow Salsify, Tragopogon pratensis
Meadow Salsify, a member of the aster family of flowers, is a native of Europe but is now found across North America. It stands up to 1 yd/1 m tall and grows grass-like in fields, meadows and disturbed areas. The showy yellow flower heads are 2 in/5 cm wide. One of its other common names is Jack-go-to-bed-at-noon because the flower usually opens up to enjoy the morning sun before closing again for the day round about noon.
