Angelica looks very much like Queen Anne’s lace which is a non-native, naturalized wildflower on roadsides and in fields. But angelica has different leaves and can be much larger. This is hairy angelica (Angelica venenosa), one of only 3 species found in Georgia. In addition to height and leaf shape, it can be distinguished from Queen Anne’s lace by a slight difference in the flower head, especially as the bloom gets older and it develops from a flat arrangement to a more pronounced umbel. This perennial plant develops a thick taproot and is very drought tolerant. This is a native host plant for Black swallowtail butterflies.

Plants that thrive in what we might consider challenging conditions (such as standing water) deserve special respect. Buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis) is a large native shrub that thrives in wet conditions, offering beauty and nourishment where you might not expect. Bees and butterflies love buttonbush flowers and their strange, exotic look is a special treat for humans too. Of course what we think is one flower is a cluster of many small ones. This plant is native throughout Georgia and all of the eastern US, growing in marshes, along streams and other wet areas. They do well at the edge of ponds and are happy to extend their roots right into the pond. The seeds ripen in the fall and are eaten by ducks, geese and other birds. They have been blooming for a while and might still be.

"I see skies of blue and clouds of white...and I think to myself, what a wonderful world."

Louis Armstrong was right, it is a wonderful world! Despite some thunderstorms, there were still plenty of beautiful blue skies on the parkway this weekend.

Thanks for sharing your experience on the parkway with us Stephanie Adams. Tag us in your parkway adventures with the hashtag #RecreateResponsibily for the opportunity to be featured on our page!

UPDATED to reflect new reporting instructions! https://agr.wa.gov/about-wsda/news-and-media-relations/news-releases?article=31411

Today we received reports of people receiving seeds in the mail from China that they did not order. The seeds are sent in packages usually stating that the contents are jewelry. Unsolicited seeds could be invasive, introduce diseases to local plants, or be harmful to livestock.

Here's what to do if you receive unsolicited seeds from another country:

1) DO NOT plant them and if they are in sealed packaging (as in the photo below) don't open the sealed package.

2) This is known as agricultural smuggling. Report it to USDA. Information in our latest press release on how to report: https://agr.wa.gov/about-wsda/news-and-media-relations/news-releases?article=31411
