Four More Mountain Wildflowers

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 pubescensΒ 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.

      1. I know, my granddaughter arrived in tears today after seeing a Squirrel road kill this morning.. And yes, I even try avoiding destroying spiders webs while gardening and find my self apologising out loud to insects that I disturb.. πŸ™‚ Weeds now, well they are so plentiful and I am sure Mother Nature agrees, we should make room to self sustain ourselves with her bounty πŸ™‚
