Bunchberry Flowers

This is what the plant looked like in June when in flower.

 

 

Large Leaf Aster aster macrophyllus 

One of my favorite plants is the Large Leaf Aster. In some areas their big leaves carpet the forest floor. Most of the plants look like the above photo, but they do produce a rather unimpressive flower.

Large Leaf Aster

This year the Large Leaf Aster is putting on quite a show in the woods, I don’t think I have seen them flower this prolifically in past years. This plant is also known as “lumberjack toilet paper”.
