Wildflowers: daisy, common poppies, cornflowers
Leucanthemum vulgare, Papaver rhoeas, Centaurea cyanus L.
The name Leucanthemum comes from the words leukos - white and anthemon - flower and was given because of the color of the flowers. Daisy, on the other hand, is the common name for the goldenrod proper, also called hawkweed proper. Also the Latin name is not uniform. You can meet Leucanthemum vulgaris and Chrysanthemum leucanthemum. Regardless of what we call these beautiful flowers - they are undoubtedly a real ornament of fields and meadows. The golden baskets surrounded by a garland of snow-white petals are actually composed of steaks of tiny, tubular yellow flowers. The daisy is one of the largest wildflowers in Poland.
Common poppies are an extremely common species, but you can never completely saturate your eyes with their sight. The red heads of Papaver rhoeas appear every year in the meadows, and their petals, smooth as silk, easily yield to the lightest breezes. Poppies, though beautiful and ephemeral by nature, are a nuisance to farmers. Seeds, extremely vigorous have a germination capacity of about 30-40 years, as a persistent weed they are a threat to the grain crop.
Another inhabitant of the field meadow is cornflowers, a flower that has many different folk names, such as macchia, samosa or modrak. Although it is a common weed in Poland, its modish crown of tiny flowers adorns the meadow like blue jewels glittering in the sun. The cornflower, which blooms from May to September, is pollinated by butterflies, among others, and its fruits are dispersed by the wind and ants. Sometimes its seeds can go astray among fields and fallow land, and then, spreading along with the crops, cornflowers pierce the golden ears of wheat or rye with their flower baskets, or shine intensely among the wasteland like blue stars.
