A Fringed Polygala (Polygala paucifolia) about to bust out!
This is one of the first wildflowers we saw after buying this property
in 1994. I had never seen one before and thought we must have a real
rarity. Of course, we now know that this is a ubiquitous plant in our
woods. No less pretty, though.
How to pronounce: "Polygala" is pronounced syllabically like "Caligula."
|A common name for the Fringed Polygala is "Gaywings."|
