Visit to Blue Curls site


On Aug. 25 (and again with David Patriquin on Sep 2), Charles Cron and Bob Kennedy canoed and hiked out to the only known site of Blue Curls (Trichostema dichotomum) in the Maritimes. We wish to thank Sean Blaney for making this possible.

Along the way around Shingle Lake we also found a number of interesting plants, such as Twining Screwstem (Bartonia paniculata), Michaux’s Birch (Betula michauxii), Pink Corydalis (Capnoides sempervirens), Hairy Rosette Panic Grass (Panicum acuminatum), Narrowleaf Pinweed (Lechea intermedia), Greenland Stichwort (Minuartia groenlandica), a very narrow leaved form of Broadleaved Arrowhead (Sagittaria latifolia) and the minute purple flowered North-eastern Bladderwort (Utricularia resupinata).
