Hi all,

Could anyone identify these three plants? The first one is about up to my knees and has small white flowers with a yellow center.

Second one is about chest height and hasn't bloomed yet but there are small buds.

The third doesn't flower and and is mostly low to the ground.

I live in the Metro Boston Area of Massachusetts.

Any help is very appreciated, thanks.

Hi cedarworks, Welcome!

Can you give us an idea of where (city, state, country) these plants are growing? That will help in narrowing down an exact ID.

My eyesight isn't the greatest so these are just wild guesses on my part:

#1 maybe Oxeye Daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare)
#2 maybe Starry Campion (Silene stellata)
#3 Leaves remind me of Viola, maybe Canadian white violet (Viola canadensis var. canadensis) ?

Hopefully someone more knowledgeable with plants in your part of the country will be along with suggestions soon!

Welcome!

I agree with Lin on 1 (ox-eye daisy) and that three is probably a violet. I wonder if 2 is a fleabane (Erigeron):
