    Crab Apple Tree

    These are very common around the central states and the south. We had one in our front yard in Tennessee. I remember very well climbing that tree all the way to the top. A few times I got up there and couldn't get back down and my dad would have to come rescue me. I got really good at climbing trees by the time I was seven. I was like a monkey. I remember climbing up to the top of trees and sitting there enjoying the solitude and feeling safe. It's amazing what our memories do and do not allow us to remember isn't it? Morgan

    I know this isn't a flower or shrub but it is all over Illinois right now and very important to the economy of the nation and in feeding  the world.

    Corn of course.

    A weed? Oh my goodness! They are delicacy here! The Amish sell them by the boat load. I used to go with my grandma to pick them in the wild. They make excellent jam as well if you don't mind the seeds. A weed, now that surprised me!

    Rose of Sharon Bush

    These plants are very common in Illinois. The humming birds love them because of the huge bright pink and red blossoms. They also come I a white variety. I was once sitting outside at our mental health clinic here in town and they have a beautiful red rose of sharon bush next to the door. A lady asked me what it was and when I told her she lit up and got really excited. "Oh," she said, "that's why they call Christ the rose of sharon!" I guess she was talking about how beautiful they were, I don't know. I guess I made her day. There was one right outside the window of my room in the nursing home. I used to watch the humming birds. It's a lovely plant.

    perrsonally i like them. but i have heard people removing from their gardens. They do kind of overtake gardens.
    we have blueberries and raspberries -usually cultivated and strawberries, always cultivated.

    We have rich black dirt here i Illinois left by the recession of the ice sheets that once covered most of North America. It smells great when it rains in the spring after the farmers have been plowing, It will grow about anything especially, it would appear, berries of any kind. They grow wild all around even strawberries!

      Post a name of a flower or shrub - Page 10 Th16

    Here's another plant that people grow on farms here. Yews aka Christmas trees. My ex-husbands cousin had a farm he worked on occasionally.

    not an authority on dirt but i know people tend to remove stuff that grows wild --
    i am no gardner and  no farmer, don't  even have house plants.
    when i did, George used to eat them.

    Here's another plant you see all over Illinois that feeds the world. Soybeans. They are extremely high in protein. And yes, they do flower.

    They can even make clothing out of soybean fibers! It's a very versatile and important crop.

      Post a name of a flower or shrub - Page 10 Sunflo10

    Sunflowers are such a fascinating plant! They grow to be over ten feet tall here in our fertile Illinois soil. Their heads follow the sun as it crosses the sky and the birds who love hard seeds love them! They are really good if you harvest the seeds and bake them in the oven on low with lots of salt. Sunflower oil is found in many, many products. You've never seen anything as beautiful as a huge field of these things being grown as a crop. Beautiful yellow heads as far as the eye can see!

    Holly Hocks are pretty cool flowers that bloom along fence rows and in areas that were once occupied by out houses. You can turn the flower upside down and make a ballerina. I used to love to play with these when I was young. One of the few good things about moving to Illinois. These things are very hardy and grow almost anywhere. They spread quickly too.

    another plant that i think of as pretty but local gardners tend to think of as a weed and remove.
    i first saw them when i was 10 in Virginia and my family asked me  NOT to pick them

    Morning Gloriies are also considered by many to be weeds but I think they are lovely. They only open early in the morning and they smell great! Morgan

    Morning glories will choke a corn field if allowed to grow wild but people still plant them on trellises in their yards. One year I planted a ton of them to help shade a trailer I lived in. It worked! and it smelled fantastic in the morning!

      Post a name of a flower or shrub - Page 10 Hedge10

    Here's something you don't want near your home or to be by if i comes up a wind storm, hedge apples. They are huge bigger than both of my fists and hard as a stone. Some people swear they will  keep away bugs or some such nonsense.

    Cat Tails

    These plants grow wild all over Illinois wherever there is a substantial amount of fresh water. My grandpa *the good one" used to use them to make stink bait for fishing.
