Can you ID this beautiful yellow flower?
There are a bunch of plants on the side of the access road at Hwy. 157 & 183 in Euless in a construction area.
They have been blooming several weeks now.
Would like to have one in my yard.

That looks like Buffalo Bur (Solanum rostratum) to me. It is a prickly plant often considered a weed. Propagation from seed should be easy.

Thanks, I think your right.
And I don't think I want it anywhere near my yard.
Too bad, it's so pretty blooming all along the side of the road.

RE: ID Please

That is pretty and I've seen them from the car also.
