No answers, so I'll go ahead and tell you all what it is: It's a Common Butterbur (Petasites hybridus) -- but in my opinion those are particularly compact and lovely inflorescences. Probably because our winter was so crazy this year. You can find them all over the place, your side of the pond too.

Still working on finding out what that other one up there is. It's driving me nuts. Doesn't look like artemisia anymore, now that I've given it more than a cursory glance.

I love plants.

Hi Jack,
Sorry I haven't checked back on the thread here in a while.
You got some Potentilla cinquefolia , sassafras and perhaps wood sorrel on the bottom.
We actually have one of those sorrels (if that's what they are) in a pot that's about 20 years old - it still flowers too.

I think you should start another thread like this in survival and show edible and medicinal plants.

here's my thinking on those 5..

1) Indian Strawberry

2)wood Strawberry or Common Strawberry Peterson's says the difference is where the seeds are on the berries..

3)Dwarf Cinquefoil

4)Sassafras tree

5)Violet Wood Sorrel

posting up more pics in a moment...

Here are three that I have no clue what they are but each seems to have some very interesting features...the first two are low ground level plants in a shaded moist area.. the third is a tree with some strange blooms..



 




 





Off to see what new plants are coming into flowering.... We have had so much rain this spring that the Valley is absolutely lush and vibrant... everything seems to be thriving..

3) American Bladdernut


What do you think?

I think this one is Wood sorrel. I learned about it as a child at a local state park, I was told it would help with thirst.

Hi JacKatMtn,
I was just thinking of making a treath like this one "identify the plant, flower, tree" were members upload a picture of a plant they find in their backyard, fields,...to learn more about them.
Instead of searching the whole internet for a same-like photo to identify the plant and know more of their properties.
I also wanted to know if its poisonous or edible and maybe what it can be used for.
I have began to make a personal database, file of plants in my surroundings but i still have many many plants to go

Rather than starting a new thread, I was wondering if I could post my pictures here?
Thank you

1) The first one has two possibilities... Osmorhiza longistylis or Osmorhiza claytonii ... perhaps with your experience you can help me to discern the difference.. they appear to be the same to me.. The key to making sure you have one of these is definitely the scent of licorice.

2) Yellow Wood Sorrel

3) Black Locust Tree

4) I located the ID of this plant about 2 weeks ago when I took the picture, but can't seem to find it now

Guess it will remain a mystery for the time being, I recall that it had no edible or medicinal value so that might be why it's a tough one.....


more in a bit.....

Here's the latest group to be identified..

#1 - Chrysanthemum leucanthemum - Oxeye daisy (leaves edible)
#2 - Rumex acetosella (sheep sorrel - yummy! leaves edible again.)
#3 - Viburnum of some type perhaps?
#4 - Looks like the flower head of Senecio aureus or Golden Ragwort, would help to see foliage (do not eat in any case!)
#5 - Wild chamomile or scentless chamomile (edibility?)

Ok, I cheated on the last one and went to the books.

Bad boy, bad!

According the the Petersons Edible Wild Plants Wild Chamomile makes a pineapple scented tea. That sounds awesome.

That purple flower is most likely Corn cockle (Argostema githago, alien)
Purdy little thang though - were there more than 1 plant or was it growing singly?)

That's it!!! corn cockle..


It was a single... could have been the first one though there were a few buds close by..

Quick question.. the one you identified as wild chamomile.. do the flower heads get that large? that one is over 2" in diameter.. I do have pics of some chamomile that I ID'd in the field, just need to get the photos processed and uploaded...

So many daisylike flowers it can get confusing at times


 


Also added a pic of the foliage of the yellow flowered plant beneath the first pic, follow the stalks down to see the foliage..

I'm not sure about the size of the chamomile flowers.

As for what i called ragwort it looks more like a hawkweed, perhaps king devil (hieracium pratense).
I'm glad you ID these in the field, it's far, far better to do it there than to try from photos.

Good work
