One of my wildflower society friends took us to explore her friends' land.
There were hundreds of young Trout Lily leaves (Erythronium americanum).
Close-up of the bloom.
Shooting stars! Tons! (Dodecatheon meadia.) I've never seen so many in one place.
I wasn't familiar with these, but was assured that they are Carolina Lilies (Lilium michauxii). Not blooming yet.
Not your ordinary ginger. Shuttleworth's, I think. (Hexastylis shuttleworthii.)
Cranefly orchid leaves. (Tipularia discolor). Waaaay more than usual.
I'd heard of Yellowroot before - it's a traditional medicinal plant - but had never seen it blooming. I love the burdundy color. (Xanthorhiza simplicissima.)
Also in the area...
No idea what it is, except a pretty white tree.
Bloom where you're planted...? Yellow wood sorrel (Oxalis stricta).
A Verbena, growing in a roadside ditch.
