Flower ID

Hello! I am under the belief that this is Spreading Dogbane. I would like to know if I am correct. Let me know what you think.

Re: Flower ID

I believe you are right: Spreading Dogbane (Apocynum androsaemifolium)

Note the dogbane is because it is quite toxic and has killed dogs and other animals. Some people are sensitive to it and will get a severe rash just from touching it.

So tell us more. Where are you finding all these lovely wildflowers? And why don't you trust your own ID's, since you seem to be very knowledgeable?

Re: Flower ID

Hello,
I am from Northern Saskatchewan and finding these on the various hiking trails of my local regional park. I am also working on an activity for children to complete and I want to make sure that I have my stuff in line.
Thanks for your reply!
