Flowers are Fabulous, but Don't Forget to Shoot the Fruit

Hi AT-ers,

Summer is in full force. Although some of our target species can still be seen flowering at high elevations, many have moved on to their fruiting phases.

Keep a look out for budding and flowering Bluebead Lily (Clintonia borealis), Canada Mayflower (Maianthemum canadense), and Bunchberry (Cornus canadensis) at or near tree-line on high peaks.

Fruits

The other target species have moved on to fruiting, including Yellow Trout Lily (Erythronium americanum), Hobblebush (Viburnum lantanoides), and Red Trillium (Trillium erectum) pictured above. Bluebead Lily (Clintonia borealis), Canada Mayflower (Maianthemum canadense), and Bunchberry (Cornus canadensis) have started fruiting at low latitudes and elevations.

Thank you & Happy Trails!
