Spotted Coralroot - BWCA Wildflower Photography by Erik W. L. Anderson

 

July 9th, 2014 - Report by Angelique Edgerton

 

This week the woods are filled with summer flowers. Most recently, I hiked the trail at George Washington Pines. Along the parking area and in clearings among the trees, we found many of our sun-loving summer flowers, including Queen Annes lace (Daucus carota), oxeye daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare), orange hawkweed (Hieracium aurantiacum), king-devil hawkweed (Hieracium pilloseloides), tall buttercup (Ranunculus acris), and yarrow (Achilleawildflowercontest.jpg millefolium).

 

Further in and under the pines, we saw one-flowered pyrola (Moneses uniflora), bush honeysuckle (Diervilla lonicera), American vetch (Vicia americana), abundant twinflower (Linnaea borealis), wild roses (Rosa species), a small shinleaf (Pyrola species), and many coral root orchids (Corallorhiza maculosa).
