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.

Pretty skies!

image

Hibiscus syringes – Rose of Sharon

image

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

image

Pycnanthemum virginianum – Virginia mountain mint

I could be wrong…

image

Centaurea stoebe – Spotted knapweed

 image

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

image

Sassafras albidum – sassafras, white sassafras, red sassafras or silky sassafras
