Hocking Hills Wildflowers Right Now

Friends Beth & Chuck recently hiked through the Rock House area to enjoy spring wildflowers. They report that trillium, jack-in-th-pulpit, Dutchman’s-breeches and many others are on full display. I’ll have to get over there.

In the meantime, I hiked into the woods behind our house (same woods our Marsh Hollow cabin is near) and found the following beauties today:

  • Bluets
  • Common blue violet
  • Cut-leaved toothwort
  • Golden ragwort
  • Hispid buttercup
  • May-apple (not blooming yet, but getting ready)
  • Poor man’s pepper
  • Rue anemone
  • Smooth phlox
  • Smooth yellow violet
  • Spring beauty
  • Sweet white violet
  • White trillium

I can only hope I got the names right because I’m using the 1968 edition of A Field Guide to Wildflowers of Northeastern and North-central North America by Roger Tory Peterson and Margaret McKenny. Things can change in that amount of time.
