- It blooms much later than Early Yellow Locoweed; and
- Both Locoweed plants can apparently affect the nervous system, and thus the behaviour of animals who eat these plants.
Late Yellow Locoweed blooms in Prairie grasslands, open woodlands and eroded slopes, with the whitish flower stalks rising straight and tall above the leaves.
I saw Late Yellow Locoweed this summer in a corner of a ditch where several other early summer wildflowers were blooming.
The very light colours of the petals were a challenge to capture — too much light, and they washed out; too little, and the detail vanished.
