Weekly Wildflower Feature for the week of May 25, 2020

Hello friends! We hope you all had a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend. How did you and your family safely celebrate?

This week, we’d like to continue honoring our country’s fallen heroes with a Red, White, and Blue Wildflower Feature. Keep an eye out for these three flowers:

Red Columbine (Aquilegia canadensis): If you spot this flower on the trails, it will capture your attention instantly. You can’t miss its stunning red flowers that decorate the plant like miniature crowns!

Foamflower (Tiarella cordifolia): At first glance, this plant might look like a funky stalk of white foam in the distance. When you get closer, you’ll find that these flowers just have extra-long stamens. If you’re lucky, you might even find the pink variety of this flower!

Wild Blue Phlox (Phlox divaricate): This pinwheel-shaped flower has quite the color range: from deep blues and purples to faded lilacs and azures and even white! Which colors can you find?

Hi there! Yes, I believe you can. I will work on adding photos to this week's feature! We will also be promoting the project on our team's Instagram account, once we get it up and running.
