Plants

 

Poison Ivy (Rhus radicans)

Poison Ivy is a very nasty plant, which I am extremely allergic to. Poison Ivy has trifoliate leaflets and grows on a woody, hairy vine. The fruit of Poison Ivy, which is shown above, is a drupe and has a distinct white color.

White Oak (Quercus alba)

A fun fact about the White Oak is that Native Americans used to boil their acorns as a source of food.

Virginia Creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia)

Sugar Maple (Acer saccharinum)

The Sugar Maple’s sap contains about 1.5-3% solids and the sap does not taste sweet until it is concentrated by evaporation.

Tartarian Honeysuckle (Lonicera tatarica)

The Tartarian Honeysuckle is actually native to Siberia and was introduced to the US in 1752!

Sweet Goldenrod (Solidago odora)

Small Wood Sunflower (Helianthus microcephalus)

There are 6 bee species that only pollinate the Small Wood Sunflower!
