I'm waiting for linrose to post her American Beauty Berry blooms. I'm not going to post my pixs of it, quick linrose, they are blooming now.

Hi rebeK, that conjoined twin is interestingly different. I found a weird thing in with the redbuckias here at home, and this strange guy was sort of hiding in with, trying to look like the redbuckia, but had a green flower, I'll try to find a pix of it tomorrow if it is still out there.

The first conjoined blossom I ever saw was a rudbeckia hirta at the Toledo Botanical Gardens, back in 2011.

Why do you call it a wannabe? It looks like one to me....

The green parts are from a insect that is making a gall in the flowerhead.

I'm glad somebody knows what is causing the phenomenon.

All interesting shots! was it slippery coming back down on the granite??? When I hike I don't mind the rain, but i do get concerned when the rocks coming down are slick and treacherous...

Awesome.

I love to see our natives growin in their natural environment. I also love what grows on rocky outcrops (a preference which I'm sure I have shared numerous times).

I try to remember to take a picture of the surroundings as well as close-ups to help me remember naturally occurring companion plants--i like to mimic nature with my habitats project.

Any pictures (or lists) of companion plants are always welcome. <hint, hint>
