An easy plant to identify, right? Another yellow flower growing along our roadsides, but once Hickory and I stopped to look at it, we could tell Miz Flora about the wings and alternating leaves. She rattled off, Wingstem, Actinomeris alternifolia.
And yes, it looks just like its common and scientific names!
The bugs swarming the flowers have left them pretty battered…and sorry, we haven’t gotten to the bugs yet!
