|White Foxglove Breadtongue are on the left and purple and |
white Small's Beardtongue are at the right center of this view.
Both these flowers show well in part shade.
|These are growing in part sun. The leaves |
are opposite and clasp the stem.
|This close-up shows the fine hairs that cover the flowering parts. |
The flower is the perfect size for a bee to climb in.
|This Eastern Beardtongue is not as leafy. This specimen |
has leaves with edges that roll inward (involute).
|Here you can see the lines down the throat of the flower that act as nectar guides|
|The leaves of this forest species are broader than |
the other two shown here and the stem is leafier.
|Here the beard on the flower's 'tongue' is very pronounced.|
