This is an introduced species from Europe. The carrots we eat today were once cultivated from this plant.
This is another native wildflower. It’s sepals are roughly the same length as its petals.
This native flower is found in the eastern U.S. Native Americans used for many strange purposes including stopping nosebleeds, helping with gall bladder issues, and as a spice for salmon.
This strange plant is an easy one to recognize, it doesn’t have any chlorophyll. It is also known as ghost/corpse plant.
I was surprised to find a couple of these still flowering. It seemed a bit late. These are unusual because the leaves wither away by the time the flowers are in bloom.
One of my favorites! Named after a town in England where it once grew abundantly.
This wildflower is also known as a Touch-me-not. This name comes from their explosive seed pods. Animals brush into the pods, the pods literally explode, and seeds get dispersed. The sap of this flower also helps relieve poison ivy itchiness.
This is one if my favorites even though it’s an invasive from Europe. Quite delicate and beautiful.
