Wildflower Walks with Christine Bock: Virginia Bluebells and other Spring Ephemerals
Join with us as we walk along the paths at Rising Fawn Gardens to view the prolific and delicate spring wildflowers. Christine will guide our walk as she shares her vast knowledge of plants and helps us spot the emerging beauties! Hundreds of Virginia Bluebells can be found along Lookout Creek at the site of Cureton mill, guarded by the maroon flowers of the paw paw and joined by Golden Alexanders. Then we will go to another site rich with flowers including phlox, alumroot, bellwort, violet wood sorrel, mayapple, and a large area of trout lilies and shooting star, not often seen in this area. This walk will be a longer walk to cover several profuse wildflower areas on the farm. Participants can choose to follow on both trail sections.
