When hiking have you ever seen a flower and wondered what is that?
Well, there are several ways to get your answer..... 
Ask a ranger or naturalist, nature books and/or do an internet search.
When doing a search online some of the best places to find your plant are...
National Parks or State Parks websites they usually have links
to the local plant and animals seen in their areas.
State websites and some Colleges also may have a link.  

The flower below is one I posted sometime ago without it's name.
While doing a recent search for other plants I found it listed.
 I also learned that it is not a native plant to this area 
and was originally from Southern Europe.

Vinca major (non-native)


  1. so this plant is like most of us, has its roots way back in Europe.
