These guys are popping up everywhere, and the better half says they are native wildflowers. I am thinking silverleaf nightshade??? Sorry for the sideways pics!

Silver leaf nightshade
Pros: pretty flowers, grows wild, drought and heat resistant, host plant to white horseman butterflies
Cons: invasive with deep roots making it hard to control in some cases. Is poisonous to cattle and people if eaten

Thanks 8point and Rustler. I found some interesting facts on this from a book - the Indians would use the fruit (that yellow stuff coming out of the flower) to make cheese as well as to treat sore throat and toothache. They also mixed it with some sort of cream to treat poison ivy. It is also deer proof. But yep - it is very invasive.

Native Americans and early Hispanic's used the berries to make cheese, the berries have a coagulating agent. The berries would be removed from the whey afterwards. I've eaten cheese made this way.

Don't eat the berries, they and all parts of the plant are toxic.
