|The flowers of Bloodroot only last a couple of days.|
|The three stem leaves on this Cutleaf Toothwort |
are easy to see here.
|Mayapples open like little umbrellas on the woodland floor. |
These leaves will expand to 8 inches or more.
|I am trying a number of native ground covers like these under some pine trees |
to replace the Vinca minor.
|I noticed that these blooms open the widest when the sun is at full strength.|
|Needed to use my hat to get the flowers to be visible.|
|The pubescent flower stem is an identifying feature |
of this species of Saxifage
|This Trout Lily started blooming about 2 weeks after the Bloodroot. |
This flower is on the pale side for E. americanum, it could be different species or a variation. (On looking more carefully, this is E. albidium, based on the spreading tip of the style; it's united in E. americanum.)
