Spring wildflowers such as Dutchman’s breeches (Dicentra cucullaria), bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis), Virginia bluebells (Mertensia virginica), spring beauty (Claytonia virginica), twinleaf (Jeffersonia diphylla) and several species of trillium (Trillium spp.) color the forest floor for a fleeting moment this time of year. Join Naturalist Mary Anne Borge to learn why these wildflowers are called spring ephemerals, their life cycles and the animals that disperse their seeds and help with pollination. You’ll also learn about companion plants blooming at this same time of year.
