West Virginia White butterflies are important pollinators of Spring herbaceous perennials. I have seen them visit flowers of

  • Acteae pachypoda
  • Erigeron philadelphicus
  • Erigeron pulchellus
  • Stellaria pubera
  • Trillium grandiflorum

Notably - all are white-flowered species.

  • Green sepals longer than the white flower petals

Stellaria corei is a tetraploid (4n) descendant of the diploid Stellaria pubera, and in a appearance the two are nearly identical. The most useful diagnostic trait is sepal length, although it is not always straight forward telling the two apart.

Betty's Creek Recreation Area

On the forest floor and along the Creek, Luzula echinata is quite common. Only atop these mossy logs have I noticed this species. A curious and delightful scene.

  • solitary florets that sometime sprout a second floret in stair-step fashion

Accompanied by two mosses that carpet the log, Calicladium imponens with a scattering of Thuidium delicatulum.

The spider doing a cameo in the first photo may be a young Brown Water Spider, Dolomedes species.

  • with apothecia!

Accompanied by Dicranum montanum, which seems well capable of quelling the spreading habit of Ochrolechia yasudae that usually over-runs the mosses on the rocks that it inhabits. Perhaps with the vegetative reproduction held at bay, this individual has resorted to spore production via the disc-like apothecia.

photos 3 & 4 show a spent inflorescence from last season

This species is a "multi-annual" and is like an Agave in that respect, which is to say that the rosette of leaves increases in size each season until sufficient energy reserves have been accumulated to allow the production of a large inflorescence, into which the plant pours, and finishes, its life.

As Howard Scott Gentry put it, "After years of rain and light-catching, the time comes to make a show of things." [Gentry, 1972, The Agave Family in Sonora ]

Bartram Trail, Franklin, North Carolina

When I saw this attractive, architectural, colorful rosette of leaves, I knew it would be photogenic. As to its identity, I did not know, and hoped its charismatic form would have a following amongst botanists. Serendipity lent a hand, as that evening, whilst reviewing observations of another iNaturalist, they had an observation of this same species in the same early stages of the season. And, when I uploaded my photo, iNat's top choice was Smooth Rock Cress - a plant I knew nothing of until yesterday.

This patch was loose on the forest floor, apparently torn away by some woodland creature, perhaps a bird, and so a convenient sample with spore capsules was usefully at hand. I tucked it under a wedge of bark, on the tree trunk, after the photos were taken.

"The Art of Mother Nature".

These images represent the brief but beautiful display we get on the first hard freeze of a winter--if we get such a morning at all at our latitude. We've had a few cold mornings just below freezing in Austin over the past few weeks, but this Arctic blast was enough to keep the temperature in the teens and 20's for several hours. The result for Frostweed is frozen sap which splits the base of the stem and comes curling out in fantasticly beautiful "shaved ice" forms. Botanical icicles. The shapes are as diverse as snowflakes.
