False obedient plant
Speaking of cattails (as I did yesterday), when I participated in a field trip to the Cedar Stump Ranch on October 16th, I saw something I’ve seldom seen: several so-called false obedient plants, Physostegia spp., which were flowering among a stand of cattails along a (dry) creek. The yellow flowers in the background near the bottom of the photograph were goldenrod, Solidago spp.
If you’d like a closer look at some of the false obedient plant flowers in this stand, click the excerpt below and it will expand to a detailed enlargement.
