    This is an image of the desert near Phoenix. I need to identify the yellow flowers and the white flowers. I know the lavender ones are owl's clover.

    Needs close-up photos, please! Can't see any detail of flower structure here.

    My wild guess:
    yellow: Balsamorhiza sagitata
    white: Astragalus purshii

    I'm sorry, but I don't have close-up pictures of the flowers.

    Thanks! I'll look up the common names for these and see if they sound familiar.

    Some other possible candidates:
    yellow: Desert marigold (Baileya multiradiata) and Yellow cups (Camissonia brevipes)
    white: Desertstar Daisy (Monoptilon bellidiforme)

    I think those are right! At least the daisy one is, I think. I think yellow cups are larger than these flowers, but not sure of that, either. Thank you so VERY MUCH.
