Orange Hawkweed (Hieracium aurantiacum or Pilosella aurantiaca) - 02
(Hawkweed, Orange - 02) This is another view of the terminal cluster of flowers on the long stem of the orange hawkweed. Cattle would not eat the orange hawkweed growing in their pastures because of the hairy nature of this wild flower, thus farmers called it the devil's paintbrush, because if ruined good pasture land. We can also look at this flower in another way; if we ate only a plant food diet, as God originally intended, then we could enjoy both the beautiful animals and wildflowers living together in the fields.
