Next we come to the Large-Flowered Valerian, Valeriana pauciflora. This species has been recorded in about half the counties here, mainly in the southern half of the state, but also extending up to Lake Erie from Ottawa to Lorain County. This species can be found in moist floodplain forests along streams, creeks, in gorges, etc. I came across many at Davis Memorial SNP in Adams County along the creek that flows through the park. This species blooms from late Spring to early Summer.
This wraps it up for the first post covering late Spring and early Summer wildflowers. At least one more, maybe two, posts will follow in the next two weeks or so, so keep an eye out! Thanks for reading!
