Slender Ladie’s Tresses

Every day there’s a new discovery at Big Branch Apiary. Today it was a delicate, white flower found while planting Redbud saplings. This is Spiranthes lacera, also called Slender Ladie’s Tresses. There were quite a few of them dappling the forrest floor.

Spiranthes lacera, native wildflower found in the eastern United States.

Other abundant wildflowers now blooming are Widow’s Tears, Blue Eyed Grass, and Jack-in-the-pulpit which, along with flowering trees such as Holly, red maple, and the oft maligned Tallow, are keeping the bees well fed.
