A few summery plants!

From an email by Jocie to the Botany Group on September 14.

Here’s a note from John and some pics that will brighten these rather sombre smoky days:

 “With all this gloomy smoke around us I thought I should send in some bright happy pics of two of my favourite wildflowers:”

  1. Armeria maritima (sea pink, thrift) which is sometimes confused with Plectritis congesta (sea blush), but which is very different particularly in its leaves, and which I believe is relatively less common particularly in our region. From Quadra Island.
  1. The papery “gone to seed” result of the above, at the end of the summer.

3.  And the glorious Erysimum arenicola (sand-dwelling wallflower). From Mt. Arrowsmith.
