In just one small spot this native wildflower blooms in the middle of the summer when there is little else blooming. It sends up a leafless stalk and blooms away for a couple of weeks.
The leaves grow separately from the flower stalk, giving this plant its common name, the Naked- flowered Tick Trefoil. Â Every summer Â we have fun finding this shy sylvan beauty flowering in its habitat. Â Its flowering marks the peak of summer. Â When it is done, the most subtle hints of fall begin.
