Marsh Calla Flower 7377

Volo is Latin for ‘I want.’ How convenient, because I want to show you a Calla palustris flower that I photographed at the Volo Bog State Natural Area in Lake County, Illinois, on June 7. Vernacular names for this native plant are bog arum, marsh calla, wild calla, and water-arum.

Thanks to Melissa Pierson for taking us to one of her favorite places in nature.
