I'd love it if you'd put the names of what the plants were on them (latin & common). I knew a lot of them, but there were a couple i didn't and i'm always looking to learn. Thanks for posting!

I think the one you have labelled as bunchberry is rue anemone- anemonella thalictroides, i believe. It's def not bunchberry. The thistles were the ones i didn't know- i thought the first one was crimson clover! The fern you don't have labelled looks like lady fern to me, but i'm no expert. The second photo looks like oxeye daisy to me. I'd like to know what the first shot is as i have this wildflower/weed in my garden. And i was tickled to see the ID on the yellow violet.

When you say yellow buckeye do you mean the tree or are you referring to a bush?

RE: Natives photos

jqpublic,
The plant in the photo is about three feet tall.
I have observed several others in the same area
some as tall as five six feet.Not sure if it is a
tree or shrub at this stage.

Hmmm. I'm thinking it is a painted buckeye (Aesculus sylvatica)...I don't think the yellow buckeye tree (Aesculus flava) would flower at such a young stage. Also the tree isn't native to the Piedmont, but only native to extreme Western NC. The painted buckeye on the other hand IS native to woodland areas as an understory bush.

Great plant though. They are one of the earliest to bloom in the spring landscape.

that Aescuhus flava was a western species.I am going to
keep an eye on this plant.
