|Small but colorful, bluets occur in clusters of 10-20 stems per|
bunch. Prefers open pastures and meadows.
|Rue anemone poking out of the leaf litter. Stalks are |
usually 4-5" in height.
|The tiny but common spring beauty. Flowers range from white|
to shades of pink and purple. The root or corm of the plant
is edible but given its tiny size, probably not worth the time
to collect and process.
|Another common inhabitant - the trout lily. Favors wooded|
slopes with rich soils and has a mottled green leaf with a shiny
smooth appearance. Leaves tend to lay close to the ground
with only the flowering stalk raising above the forest floor.
