My coneflower is looking gorgeous. It has spread out this year all on its own to double the blooms.

Not sure what these are but they are always around. Always a bright pink. Any guesses?

Picture is a little hard for me to see, but maybe something like Calandrina ciliata?

They look SO familiar, I just can't put my finger on it! I'll keep looking around for you. In the meantime, would you be able to get a closeup on a bloom?

No wildflowers here, unfortunately. They all died out. Sad

Our prettiest wildflowers bloom in the spring, then die out in around late June.

I think it is Mountain Pink, Centaurium beyrichii, or a related cousin. Smiling

Ok will get better pic tomorrow it's getting to dark now. I looked up Calandrina ciliata and sorta of looks close but no cigar.and not the Centaurium beyrichii . I've been searching on the internet the wild flowers of western Oregon and no luck.
Thank you for all the suggestions.

The Lobelia cardinalis is looking fine this time of year. I grew it from seeds from the wild area on family property. A white one even popped up. The swallowtail is 1 of 3 that just emerged today. In the background is a white with magenta eye cultivar of the local pink hibiscus, the Swamp Rose Mallow (Hibiscus moscheutos). Blooms are preparing.

Thank you. It is missing a Great Blue Lobelia, though.

A Great Blue Lobelia would definitely look nice in there nodding

The flowers close up before sunset . They have a stem 10"-12" high.
The hose washer is for size comparison.

Thank you Kim. I can't find it on the western Oregon wildflower site yet. Will keep searching. It is so sweet just love it in a vase all by itself. Lovey dubby

Maybe someone will come along with a ID .

@bumplbea - could this be your little pink wildflower?

Lady Bird's centaury (Zeltnera texensis)

Know it's the wrong part of the country, but looks similar.

I'm so excited to have happened upon this thread! And thank you, bumplbea for showing your photo!

Yesterday I took a picture of a plant I have never seen before. The photo is not in focus, and I wanted to get one with the flowers open, but I think it might be the Common Centaury (Centaurium erythraea) or Centaurium pulchellum or Centaurium calycosum, now called Zeltnera calycosa.

But you've all given me something to go on. It won't be labelled as 'Unknown flower' for long.

I knew it was one of the Centaury but it is hard to pin them down. They are all beautiful and so delicate looking. Smiling
Here is a closeup of one and a field full of them that used to be near our house. That field is no longer there, they destroyed it while fracking for natural gas. Oh the consequences of progress. Glare

It sure looks like the same flower and stems , leaves. Nora.

Wow a field full of wildflowers. So disappointing the field is no longer there.
