    Another walk in the bog.

    Went back out to the local bog I visited a few weeks ago. This time, I wanted to get some good pics of some of the other bog plants, and also search for other Drosera. So far, I have only been able to spot Drosera rotundifolia at this bog. It may be that the other natives (D. intermedia, D. filiformis, D. anglica) are not present, or are very well hidden.

    Had a brand new camera to play with, too... here goes!

    Drosera rotundifolia

    _______________

    Sarracenia purpurea



    _______________
    And, the other bog plants:

    Suspect this one is Shrubby Cinquefoil (Dasiphora fruticosa), though not 100% sure:


    Suspect this one is Spike Lobelia (Lobelia spicata) Though not 100% sure:


    These others, I have no ID whatsoever. I have been looking in wildflower books and sites, but so far, no luck.

    This flower grows on a long stalk (~18" tall) one flower to a stalk, and a single small (~1") leaf at the base.


    The small leaf at the base of the stalk is visible in the lower left hand portion of this picture.

    That 1st unknown flower is a Parnassia species, possibly P.glauca. The plant is known commonly as Bog Stars.

    Indian Springs Metro park - out by Timberline Lake Trail.

    I have looked at Kensington metropark, and spotted some pretty promising sites as well. It's on my to-do list.

    Nice photos, I especially like that macro shot of the D. rotundifolia. As for the Lobelia spicata, that would be Lobelia kalmii.
