Forest Ecosystems Daily: Wolf Mountain Overlook, Blue Ridge Parkway

Sticky false asphodel (Triantha glutinosa) in flower on the left and in fruit on the right, ekes out a living in the wet, dripping rock face on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Wolf Mountain overlook. Many plants take advantage of abundant light and moisture that are available where the road was blasted through to create the Parkway.

Many plants take advantage of abundant light and moisture that are available where the road was blasted through to create the Blue Ridge Parkway. Gorgeous hanging gardens are the happy and unexpected result. New plant for me!
