    Meadowview, Post Internship

    Instead of making several threads for every season, I'll be posting my photos from Meadowview here. I live close by and volunteer frequently, so this one thread will keep things nice and tidy.

    Anyways, we just finished up our volunteer week yesterday. We got a lot accomplished, as you will see with the week of photos. So, here they are!

    S. rubra ssp. gulfensis, the giant form. This plant rivals the height of some flavas and okee giants.

    A few species of Sphagnum from Caroline County, VA. We're working on IDing it, and getting it into cultivation

    I call this "cushion" Sphagnum. You can see why.

    Probably S. rubellum. It's much darker than most forms of red Sphag.

    N. truncata cranked out a beauty while I was gone.

    N. x mixta is a beauty! It has two colorful parents, and it grows insanely fast. I wonder what would happen if it was crossed with N. platychila?

    Last set of photos for the night.

    I'm going to try and go to Meadowview on my way back from N.C. this summer, I've wanted to for a while. I might need some of that cushion sphagnum ! Awesome pics.

    It's worth the stop. Depending on how my job search goes, I might be there this summer yet again.
    We have a few bags of the cushion Sphag that I collected from Caroline and Surry County. Hopefully we can get it ID'ed soon, because I'd love to know what it is. Just wait until you see some of the other Sphagnums I took photos of this week, and one that I discovered right down the road. It's really, really dark and fluffy!
