Gentiana lutea. Great Yellow Gentian / Gelber Enzian 🌿 Native to the mountains of central and southern Europe, it grows in alpine pastures on calciferous soil. The roots have long been collected, dried, and prepared as a bitter tonic, taken to aid in digestion. Recent studies have shown its effectiveness against indigestion, heartburn, and loss of appetite, as well as its antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties.

Die Wurzeln sind seit langem gesammelt, getrocknet und als bitteres Tonikum vorbereitet worden, um die Verdauung zu unterstützen. Jüngste Forschungen haben seine Wirksamkeit gegen Verdauungsstörungen, Sodbrennen und Appetitlosigkeit, sowie seine antioxidanten und entzündungshemmenden Eigenschaften bestätigt. Fotografiert: 09.

Just as the height of summer hits—that's when you'll see our plum-leaf azaleas (Rhododendron prunifolium) come into bloom. Keep an eye out for these fiery flowers around the Pond at Mt. Cuba Center.⠀

Mimulus guttatus (yellow monkey flower)

This gorgeous viburnum is enormous and drooping with ripening fruit at my parents property. I would like to think it's is Viburnum trilobum, the native species of cranberry bush viburnum, but I'm thinking it's a Viburnum opulus, the European species, based on the knowledge that my dad purchased it from a nursery years ago. Both have edible fruits, but the opulus fruit should only be eaten in small quantities. Viburnums are tricky, anyone have any insight?

ʻŌhiʻa ʻāhihi (Meteosideros tremuloides)
Well this one threw me for a loop. I was visiting O'ahu and decided to go for a hike in the back of Mānoa valley. The main trail ended at a waterfall and it's Hawaii so it's not like I haven't seen one if those before. I saw a little unmaintained trail that skirted up the ridge and decided to go for it. As I hiked I immediately entered bamboo forest and was thinking, "what have I got myself into? I hope it's not this botanically boring the whole way up....". But I continued on until I made it into the exotic tree wonderland full of Christmasberry, avocado, and other invasive species. This lasted for a while only to be consumed again by bamboo on the way to the lookout. Once I got there I was welcomed by a bench and I sat down looking over a valley. As I rested, I noticed that right in front of me were two native species, ʻŌhiʻa and ʻŌhelo ʻai (Vaccinium reticulatum). I wasnt expecting there to be much native flora, but was still sad at how denuded the ridgetop was of native vegetation. As I looked at the ʻŌhiʻa I kept thinking wow this ʻŌhi'a is so wierd! But the next thought was that it's species name is polymorpha and that of course it looks wierd I'm on a different island with different growing conditions. I started back down the mountain and didn't think about the plant for about six months until I saw the same plant on a friends post and it was labeled as Metrosideros tremuloides. I flipped out that I didnt spend more time with that plant. I forgot that other islands like O'ahu have other species of Metrosideros. And I wasn't expecting to see one at such a low elevation. I hope you enjoyed that botanizing debuckle. ʻŌhiʻa ʻāhihi is definitely worth a gander on those windswept ridges. Don't be like me. Spend way more time with it.
