Dotted bee balm (Monarda punctata) supposedly is a late summer – early fall wildflower but, nonetheless, one individual was photographed by Karen Schuster on 4/27/2014 at Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge when we visited with Ken Gonyo (Class of 2012) as our leader …









Also seen was coral honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens), a winter-flowering vine …









Marsh pink (Sabatia stellaris¬†) is flowering at the ‘expected’ time in this photograph sent by Nancy Soucy

Sabatia - Rosegentian/Marsh Pink








Very attractive to butterflies of all sizes, scorpion tail (Heliotropium angiospermum) flowers throughout the year and was photographed by Karen Schuster …
