Plant Game – September 27, 2017

The rules are simple.  Just pick the fake plant name from each list.  Three of the names in each list are official common names (as opposed to the scientific, or Latin names) of plants found growing in Nebraska.  The other is one that I made up.  See if you can guess the fake plant name.

Good luck!  I’ll post the answers in a day or two.

Bonus question. Can you name this Nebraska plant?
