|So I would like to use all plants medicinally in my life plants. Starting small and then becoming a full master of herbalism.
Here are quite a few plants that I took pictures of for identification purposes and the latter. Lol, also just because I enjoy taking pictures of plants.
Now I've noticed this one starts yellow and then turns white. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
This one I know as blue moutain flower from Skyrim...also as blue corn flower.
This one my mom thought was very pretty...I thought I had another picture of it, but I don't.
Then there's this one.
I like the multi coloured flower of this one...
The yellows of this one...ooh.
And this is Thistle/crab grass.
These may be related to the aster or daisy family, but I'm not sure.

|The first two pictures are of Yellow Sweetclover
Yellow Sweetclover (Melilotus officinalis)
The third pictures is of White Sweetclover (the flowers don't change color)
White Sweetclover (Melilotus albus)
Pictures 4 and 5 look like Chicory.
Chicory (Cichorium intybus)
6 I don't know.
7 and 8 are Hoary Vervain
Hoary Vervain (Verbena stricta)
9, 10, and 11 are Flower-of-an-Hour
Flower of an Hour (Hibiscus trionum)
12 and 13 appear to be St. Johnswort, but I don't know which species.
14, 15, 16, and 17 are Musk Thistle
Musk Thistle (Carduus nutans)
The last three are of some sort of Fleabane (Erigeron).

|Wow, there will be a huge amount to learn about ID'ing plants to pursue that purpose.
1, 2. Melilotus officinalis, yellow sweet clover, a weed.
3. Melilotis alba, actually a different species, not the same plant turning white. White sweet clover - a weed.
4, 5. Lactuca sp.
6. Echium vulgare, a weed.
7, 8. Verbena stricta.
9, 10,11. Hibiscus trionum, flower-of-an-hour.
12-14. Hypericum sp.
15-18. Carduus nutans
19-21. Leucanthemum vulgare, ox-eye daisy.

|Kent, you may be right about the chicory... The last one is ox-eye daisy though, not any erigeron.|

|Photo #6 Viper's Bugloss (Echium vulgare)
Photo's #15 & #16 remind me of Bull Thistle (Cirsium vulgare)
Last three photo's may be Oxeye Daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare)

|The thistle is Carduus nutans. Cirsium vulgare has a very different calyx (as shown in the photos you linked), plus prickles down the midrib of the leaves, which this plant doesn't have.|

|All nice flowers, Imaeus!
I'm wondering if ~
19 & 20 is Erigeron, but
21 is Leucanthemum vulgare
Jul 11, 2014 12:05 PM CST
|Ah, yes... 19 and 20 are different plants than 21!! Thanks for the sharp eye, wildflowers!
Kent was right with fleabane for 19 and 20.
