Cardinal Flower

Filed under: North American Native Plants — admin @ 22:15

Cardinal flowers are now blooming along the Tioughnioga River. I normally find this plant growing among other plants and as a result the inflorescence  tends to bend toward the light. Today I got lucky and found a large colony growing by itself and they had racemes that were straight upright.
