Nice, Hedge.

Mine are A. incarnata, I think.

Very nice. I *LOVE* the little cones on the edge of the twigs. I've been wanting to get some for our property for a year or two now. They caught my interest YEARS ago when I spotted them along side of a creek in my favorite park for wildflowers in Western PA. I can't wait until our property is my favorite place for wildflowers--alders included.

Great thread, Dap! Thought I might revive it a little...

Glad to see someone mentioned River oats, Chasmanthium latifolium. It is at the top of my list. As is:
Oakleaf hydrangea Hydrangea quercifolia
Sideoats grama Bouteloua curtipendula
Eastern gamagrass Tripsacum dactyloides
broomsedge Andropogon virginicus
Am. strawberrybush Euonymus americanus
Deciduous holly Ilex decidua

I love all of these, and many of them simply because of their seedheads and/or winter interest!

Thanks Katie. It is nice to see it revived.

I love little bluestem in winter and suspect I like brooms edge too for the same reason. I've been wanting to get sideoats grama...and now you give me a new-to-me grass, eastern gama grass. I'll have to look into it. I may have to look into the Ilex species you mention as well. I have added winterberry holly which is alo deciduous.

Just wait until I have so many more seedheads to photograph and enjoy in real life as well.

I took this photo of the hazelnut husks, and upon seeing the result, I decided to post it in this thread.

Very nice, dap!

Seedheads and Winter Interest-p1660015.jpg I took this in Canada yesterday. This is unedited, a natural sepia tone of the scene.

Nice. I want to encourage Clematis virginiana (that is what I think is in your photo) to grow along our wooden fence remnant--I guess I'd better do a better job of eradicating the Oriental bittersweet (that I tried tackling last year) first.
