  • Rough-Fruited Cinquefoil (Potentilla recta)

    Potentilla-recta-01

    An upright cinquefoil with pale primrose-yellow flowers, probably the showiest of our native cinquefoils. It’s a common wild flower along trails and in vacant lots.

  • Rosa multiflora

    Rosa-Multiflora-1024h

    It has no common name, at least no name fit to print. For most of the year this invasive pest is a curse on the landscape. For two weeks in June, it is a heavenly delight, covered with sweet-smelling white roses.
