Spring is in the air! This prolific flowering vine is widely used in landscaping but also native to our southeastern forests. Although poisonous it doesn’t hurt that it’s also the state flower of my home state South Carolina. Plant: YELLOW JESSAMINE (Gelsemium sempervirens)
Nifty lil native at Rye Preserve today. Variation of scrub rosemary planted in the mini garden in front of our nature center. It’s surreal to go to these places sometimes and realize what a role I played, along with @coyote_labs and @alissapwrs in creating it. It’s always fun though to go and see it and also to see people enjoying it. Growing up nature centers played a big part in shaping my love of the wild. It’s pretty fantastic to have had the chance to work on this one and pass that along. .
