Seven New Plants Added to the List for Whiteface Mountain
On July 30, 2011 the Adirondack Botanical Society had a field trip to Whiteface Mountain in Wilmington, NY. The day started out misty and cold but the clouds later lifted and it was a beautiful day. A walk up to the top along the stairway and back down along the Wilmington trail to the road and parking lot resulted in the discovery of seven new plants not seen before at the top of the mountain. They are listed below, some with photos. To access the complete plant list CLICK HERE. – Steve Young
The other two species, without photos, were Matricaria discoidea, pineapple weed, and Silene vulgaris, bladder campion. They were both found along the roadside near the parking lot. For a complete set of photos from the trip CLICK HERE.
