    ... and if we just ... Weeds

    I'm a transplanted Kansan, so please forgive my ignorance. What are the stinky weeds with the yellow flowers all over the foothills?

    Whatever they are, they are Naaassssttttyyy.

    And do they have the right of way?

    Well if that is what it is latin or southern name, the common name would be Ann Coulter. Although there may be some slight variation. The Coulter flower or rose is said to be yellow but does have some serious black roots. In either case they both have a pungent odor.

    If we're talking about the same things, my kin folks have always called em skunk cabbage. But they look like big daisies when they're blooming...

    May your trails be narrow, crooked, lonesome and dangerous, leading to the most outrageous adventures. Paladin

    I think you're talking about sunflowers (the official Kansas state flower, by the way). They look like big daisies.

    The skankboosh looks like - well, never mind.

    I love Ann Coulter's big daisies when they're blooming. My kin folks have always called em skunk cabbage. I still call it skankboosh.

    Its botanical name is Chrysothamnus nauseosus. Personally I would not want to smoke anything with "nauseosus" in the name!!

    so that horticulture degree does come in handy!!

    not only do these bushes smell craptacular, they collect some weird looking beetle things. they have a long black body with bright orange heads. at first glance i thought, 'now how in the hell did a dog sh!t up that high on a bush??!'. so far i've only seen these stinky bush beetles this fall and only on the stinky bushes. any bug people out there know what it is? and just out of curiousity and not that i miss them, but what happened to the moron crickets?! a couple of years ago they were awful. but fun to run over!

    yeah every now and then it ends up useful. Truth be told I am not positive about the species, but that was the coolest name of the half dozen or so species that grow around here. It can also be called Ericameria nauseosa!

    Speaking of "stinky bush beetles" I bet if Bill Sali gets elected we can count on him hang'n with Ann Coulter and talking "family values."
