Nodding plumeless thistle - Carduus nutans, I think? If I'm correct with my ID this non-native thistle can become invasive. I could write for a loooong time about all of my complicated thoughts and feelings on invasive species, but for now suffice it to say: I try not to fall for potentially invasive plants but HOOBOY this one is pretty!!! #plantnerd #wildflowers #wildflowersofohio #botany #botanizing #plantID #amatuerbotanist #nonnativeplants #invasiveplants

Some specimens for the plant press! I'm excited to turn these babies into some mixed media art + science love child. Not pictured: maiden hair and oak fern fronds

Agastache urticifolia (giant horse mint)

#justiciaamericana or #americanwaterwillow is such an interesting, hearty plant, growing in still or slowly-moving water. The creek this colony inhabits was mostly dry, so they were growing in a thin layer of rocky soil. The flowers usually have this arrangement of two or three bunched together on a spike. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In unrelated news, if you think American immigration policy is kind, just or reasonable, there's something deeply fucking wrong with you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's a hot day out there, stay cool! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Fairy Parasols (Splachnum luteum) is a moss that is only found “on moose dung in soggy regions of the north.” The parasols emit an odour that attracts flies who then carry the spores to more moose dung 🤓 Pic 3 is Green-tongue Liverwort. 🌱#moss #liverwort #mossmadness #yukon #yukonterritory #botany #botanizing #whatishappening #helpme

Cabbage palm fern (Phlebodium aureum), growing on a....cabbage palm. #fern #cabbagepalmfern #phlebodium #phlebodiumaureum #epiphyte #palmtrees #floridanativeplants #botanizing

Walked through kind of a wetland hardwood hammock that was spared from clearing for development. Spotted a few Tillandsia in the trees (besides Spanish moss and ball moss). Dominant plants were laurel oak, live oak, cabbage palm, longleaf pine, and saw palmetto. #forest #wetland #hardwoodhammock #palmetto #palm #bromeliad #bromeliaceae #tillandsia #florida #conservation #hiking #botanizing

Another Wallowa wonder! Yellow Columbine, Aquilegia flavescens. With a very limited range in Oregon but closely related to the more ubiquitous Red Columbine, Aquilegia formosa. Columbines are super promiscuous and where their ranges overlap they will hybridize easily. They also hybridize with common garden varieties, the reason we keep other columbines far away from our seed population of A. formosa #promiscuousplants #wallowawonders #wallowawonderland #neoregon #oregonflora #floraoforegon #pnwnativeplants #nativeplants #nativewildflowers #aquilegia #aquilegiaflavescens #hybridization #seedpropagation #nativeplantpropagation #botanizing #wildflowers #bloomingnow #oregonnativeplants

Checked my spot for (Platanthera lacera) ragged fringed orchid today and they were starting to bloom! Being a generalist these are the most frequent Platanthera in Ohio but still a treat to find. They are easily overlooked since they are not the showiest of orchids. Walked the field for about and hour and spotted 4 plants. Excited to come back and see them in full bloom! .

Mountain toatoa (Phyllocladus alpinus) are strange gymnosperms that live throughout Te Wai Pounamu, Aotearoa. They inhabit the Podocarp/Nothofagus forests where they grow as shrubs and small trees. Other common podocarps that share the forest with the mountain toatoa are rimu are hakikatea. The leafy structures in the photo are not true leaves but modified shoots called phylloclades, which is also the characteristic from which the genus name is derived.

Hoary Balsamroot, Balsamorhiza incana, an uncommon species of balsamroot. Check out those deeply divided leaves!

Despite the harsh climate, alpine tundras can be one of the best places to find wildflowers. This alpine sunflower (Hymenoxys grandiflora) was growing on the summit of Belleview Mountain (13,323ft) among many other alpine specialists. Between the flowers and the views, it was certainly worth the climb!

I've wanted to see Painted Trillium (Trillium undulatum) for years, but sadly it's only found in one county here in Ohio. It mainly ranges throughout the Appalachian Mountains, where it resides in forests with acidic soils that are rich in organic matter. I was lucky enough to see my lifer Painted Trillium while hiking around the White Mountains in New Hampshire, and then I saw more. And more. And more. This specific large, lovely stand was alongside the trail to the summit of Cannon Mountain.
