Bloodroot ( sanguinaria canadensis)  


This flower is one of my favourite. This immaculate white flower with a unique large leaf so well jagged fill me with delight. 

The Indians made a beautiful red dye from its red latex, decorating their pottery and... their face when at war !

                     This other photo was taken at Wendake the Huron Reserve.

      Bunchberry (Cornus canadensis )

One wouldn't walk on this showy white and green carpet. Later these carpets bearing numerous small red fruits turn red and green. 

          Squirrel Corn    (Dicentra canadensis)

Dutchman's Breeches' cousin, the Squirrel Corn flower shows no pantaloon ! The flower is heart-shaped. The plant owes its name to the form of its kernel.

          Common Strawberry ( Fragaria virginiana )

The fruit is small but so sweet ! Do you know it belongs to the Rose family ?


         Northern white violet (Viola blanda)

Grows in wet woods and beside brooks.

       Wild Sarsaparilla (Aralia nudicaulis)

It  is a partculiar plant. The flower is always under the leaves. Its stalk is nude. A Schtroumpf's favorite.

      Solomon's Seal ( Polygonatum biflorum )

Look how graceful it is. The greenish white twin flowers are characteristic.

                 False Solomon's-seal ( Maianthemum racemosum )

Just admire !



Here flowers form a pyramidal cluster placed at the tip of the stem.




Goldthread (Coptis groenlandica)

   A very small flower with thin white sepals, a long stem and evergreen leaves.
