POTD: Musk Thistle

Posted on

In the Asteraceae family, this is a Carduus Nutans. Other names are nodding thistle and nodding plumeless thistle. It has been deemed a noxious weed and is very invasive. This was in my yard and I wouldn’t advise stepping on one. ~Vic

POTD: Star Of Bethlehem

Posted on

Pl@ntNet had a little trouble with this one. It didn’t show up in World Flora or USA Flora but, finally showed up in Western Europe Flora. In the Asparagaceae family (which includes asparagus…yum), its genus & species is Ornithogalum Nutans. In this case, it is a Drooping Star of Bethlehem. ~Vic

POTD: Winter Creeper

Posted on

In the family of Celastraceae and the species of Euonymus Fortunei, I believe this may be a Coloratus. Also called the Spindle or Fortune’s Spindle, it is named for Scottish botantist Robert Fortune. It is native to East Asia and has become invasive here in the US. It can kill a tree, despite being very pretty. ~Vic
