Here are four more of my favorites. Their beauty is sublte.
The first is in the snapdragon family Smooth False Foxglove/ Aureolaria laevigata.
It lives under oaks and its buds remind me of corn kernels.
This is two types of Spiked Lobelia/ Lobelia spicata.
The flowers are similar, but the arrangement varies.
The flowers have matured into fruit on this Partridgeberry/ Mitchella repens.
I love its creeping growth and brilliant red berries.
This Rattlesnake Plantain(Orchid)/ Goodyera pubescens is loved for its leaves.
This plant has been collected for terrariums.
Never take a wild plant home. They have needs that you cannot meet.
Love them and leave them.
