Weed Walk - Quaker Ladies and More

Bluets or Quaker ladies (Houstonia caerulea) are abundant, long-lasting, smile-makers. Enjoy.

Blue cohosh (Caulophyllum thalictroides) has already flowered and is starting to set seeds. The early plant has a soft blue haze to it, still visible a bit in the photo. It is not related to blue cohosh. (Wait until the early winter to dig roots, if at all. This plant is in danger of overharvesting.)

Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis) is a rare woodland plant. I planted roots gifted to me by United Plant Savers between the black and blue cohoshes and a lovely patch is forming with little daughter plants springing up.
