Question of the Week – Toadflax

Posted by romeethredge on June 7, 2014

Last week’s question was a weed ID question and the plant was Toadflax. (Nuttallanthus canadensis)

 Toadflax is spring-blooming wildflower.  It has lavender-blue flowers on top of wispy stalks up to two foot tall, with a few erect string-like leaves. Blooms appear from April to September. They prefer to grow in dry sandy soils in a sunny location. Toadflax is native to most of the Eastern U.S. and California. I don’t know how it got that name?

This week I have a wildlife tracker question. A corn grower and I were looking at his corn right next to a pond and this is what we saw at the pond’s edge. What left these markings?
