SITY: Striped Wintergreen

On Friday I took a quick hike into the wooded area of my property so that I could check on the rattlesnake plantain. There were no flowers yet but also no withered flower stalks, so I don’t think I’ve missed its bloom time. I’ll just have to go back again in a couple of weeks.

But, I was just in time to catch the striped wintergreen (a.k.a. spotted wintergreen) in bloom.

The flowers have a lovely scent unlike anything I’ve smelled before.
