Wingstem — 2 Comments

  1. I live in Virginia, and have this plant on my property. What particularly drew it to my attention was one plant standing tall — but veins only. The reason was an abundance of Silvery Checkspot butterfly caterpillars!

  2. You’ve done well to identify your weeds there, Jeff. I can always figure out a new blooming wildflower (since I have books), but haven’t been real successful at non-blooming weed ID.

    That stalk on the wingstem looks a bit like celery. We have something in our pasture that looks very similar, but I’m not sure it’s wingstem. One of our biggest problems, beside multi-flora rose, is honeysuckle. Smells nice in spring, but it’s awfully invasive.
