Landfill collecting


This is a picture of one of the plants at the landfill where Lecia and I are collecting plants. We didn’t collect this one (which I think is Delphinium carolinianum subsp. virescens (Nuttall) R. E. Brooks) because there were only three plants. Luckily Christine was with us to take some really good photos.

So far we have 53 collections from landfill, and there is still more out there that isn’t flowering/fruiting yet. I think that’s a fair number of specimens considering we haven’t spent much time there. The hardest part is waiting for our collections to dry out in the press so that we can identify them.
