Wild Geranium

This plant has developed a way to shoot the seeds into the air, and once they land, they "WALK" across the ground to find a good spot to germinate. Really.

Venus’ Pride

This is a U.S. endangered species, and I was very happy to find it here at Middle Way Nature Reserve, where it can hopefully stay protected, and hopefully flourish.

Trailing Arbutus

Tiny rare and difficult to cultivate plant that supposedly was the first flower to cheer the pilgrims in New England after their first hard winter.

Stokes Aster

I feel like this flower looks like a small cousin to the passion flower (which it's not). In any case, I was thrilled to come across this cool looking forb!
