July Wildflower Identification

Here are some of my identifications from the month of July thus far. All of these plants were picked by one of my professors from Waterloo Park and the University of Waterloo campus. These plants were all for identification practice for the upcoming ENVS 474 practical exam. Newcomb’c Wildflower guide was used for all of the identifications.
