Look No Further For Groundcover

Where have all the flowers of spring gone? Long time passing….

Pier 1 at Brooklyn Bridge Park has a rather spectacular understory layer in its seventh year. From the top left: Celandine-poppy (Stylophorum diphyllum), mayapple (Podophyllum peltatum), and wild ginger (Asarum canadense). And hiding their lights under their bushel of leaves: Solomon’s seal (Polygonatum biflorum).

I like these so much I’m repeating it: Articles of Impeachment for Trump.

    I was under the impression that P. biflorum/commutatum had only 2 flowers in the cluster (can one call a pair a cluster?) and that having more made it P. caniculatum. At least that’s how I’ve been labeling my photos from the BBG. But perhaps this has changed – my field guides are old.
