By jmorth on Apr 24, 2015 12:14 AM, concerning plant: Small Cupped Daffodil (Narcissus 'Chungking')

Chungking is a classic small-flowered daffodil from Northern Ireland (registered 1943) of yellow petals and an orange cup. Very colorful. It was awarded the First Class Certificate in 1950 and the Award of Merit in 1948 (both from RHS). The hybridizer was Guy L. Wilson, who crossed Market Merry and Clackrattle to produce Chungking. Said cultivar is both seed and pollen fertile. 34 cultivars can call Chungking dad and 20 others owe their existence to its pollen, totaling 54 named cultivars. There are an additional 17 registered seedling crosses, making a total of 71 official offspring.

By mellielong on Apr 23, 2015 12:36 PM, concerning plant: Golden Club (Orontium aquaticum)

The book "How to Know the Wildflowers" (1922) by Mrs. William Starr Dana says you are likely to run across this plant while hunting for the purple flowers of the pitcher plant in the bogs during the month of May. Found along the borders of ponds, she says the curious club shaped object indicates its relationship to the Jack-in-the-Pulpit as well as the Calla Lily. Unlike them, Golden Club's tiny flowers are not shielded by a spathe. The Indians reportedly called this plant "Taw-Kee" and used its dried seeds as food.

By mellielong on Apr 23, 2015 12:31 PM, concerning plant: Leatherwood (Dirca palustris)

The book "How to Know the Wildflowers" (1922) by Mrs. William Starr Dana says you can find these plants in wet thickets. In April they appear as a leafless shrub with bunches of insignificant yellow flowers "and a bark so tough that we find it almost impossible to break off a branch." She says this is the Leatherwood used by Indians for thongs. She also gives it the common name of "Moose-wood." The leaves appear later and are followed by a reddish oval fruit.
