Indigenous Plants and Native Uses in the Northeast
Look at the plants growing around you:
Hiking down the slope of the hillside into the shady over-grown woods, the soil becomes moister, almost swampy in places, with water loving plants like bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis), Jack-in-the-pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum), and the pungent smelling spicebush (Lindera benzoin). The thorny low multiflora rose (Rosa Multiflora) bush is also present. White oak (Quercus species) trees can be found through here.
