February Flowers


Common Groundsel/Senecio vulgaris

Fingered Speedwell (Veronica triphyllos); rare in the city. (Most of these early bloomers are introduced species.)

Henbit Deadnettle/Lamium amplexicaule

Red Maple


Hairy Bittercress/Cardamine hirsuta

Ozark Witch-hazel/Hamamelis vernalis (indigenous, but also also introduced to the city)

Persian Ironwood/Parrotia persica

Red Deadnettle/Lamium purpureum

First insect/flower interaction I’ve witnessed this year: Honeybee on Crocus, February 10th.
