Happy Monday to you all!
This is my 400th post! Wow.
Click HERE to see what was blooming last year!
Odd seed heads, burr types. Didn’t get the rest of the plant to ID…
Cornus mas – Cornelian cherry
These fruits were pretty bitter right now. Of course I had to give it a bite.
Hibiscus syringes – Rose of Sharon
Lythrum salicaria – Purple Loosestrife
Impatiens capensis – Impatiens capensis, the orange jewelweed, common jewelweed, spotted jewelweed, spotted touch-me-not or orange balsam.
Sadly, I love the color combo.
Silene latifolia – White champion
Pycnanthemum virginianum – Virginia mountain mint
I could be wrong…
Centaurea stoebe – Spotted knapweed
Elaeagnus umbellata – Autumnberry or Autumn olive
These are invasive, however very edible. I found a great site about foraging and this guy wrote a great article about these berries.
Ageratina altissima – White snakeroot
Sassafras albidum – sassafras, white sassafras, red sassafras or silky sassafras
