Trilliums and Coral ardisia in Blairstone Forest, Tallahassee, Florida
Trilliums were found in a small patch here.
Most of the shrub layer was dominated by the invasive exotic, Â Coral ardisia (Ardisia crenata) which was full of bright red berries. This Asian plant was brought in for landscaping purposes. Here it is dominating the landscape! (Pictured below)
A nice boardwalk through the woods though.
Jet view of Shenks Ferry Wildflower Preserve
This cold morning, March 7th, while on a commercial Jet, a view of Shenks Ferry Wildflower Preserve and the Lower Susquehanna Valley was captured with an I phone 6. Cold and snowy now, but in a month and a week or so, there will be bluebells and Trilliums abound! Imagine that!
The preserve is located just to the right of the larger Island in the middle of the picture.
