Agrimonia parviflora (Swamp Agrimony) on 8-9-21, #823-2.

I have seen this plant growing in the southeast corner of the farm but I positively identified it as Agrimonia parviflora (Swamp Agrimony) in 2018. I think it is a neat plant and some grow fairly tall making it hard to get good photos of the whole plant. Common names include Small-Flowered Agrimony, Harvestlice Agrimony, Swamp Agrimony, Harvestlice, and possibly a few others.

Geum canadense (White Avens) on 5-31-18, #450-23.

I first found the Geum canadense (White Avens) growing behind the pond in the back of the farm in 2018. Since then I have found it growing in an area north of the chicken house. It is an easily identified wildflower.

Potentilla indica (Indian Strawberry) on 4-18-20, #689-10.

I first identified the Potentilla indica (Indian Strawberry) in 2020 although I had been seeing them for many years. They produce a fruit that looks like a small strawberry. Years ago I was living in Springfield, Missouri and there was a HUGE patch along the side of the house. I thought they were wild strawberries so I gave one a try. It was nearly tasteless…

Potentilla recta (Sulfur Cinquefoil) on 5-19-19, #575-21.

The Potentilla recta (Sulphur Cinquefoil) is fairly common here and there on my farm. It also likes to grow in the flower beds and garden. Common names include Sulfur Cinquefoil, Rough-Fruited Cinquefoil, Tormentil, Upright Cinquefoil, and possibly others.

Potentilla simplex (Common Cinquefoil) on 5-24-21, #799-16.

I don’t have the page for Potentilla simplex (Common Cinquefoil) finished yet. I just found it along the fence in the back pasture in 2021. I will get the page ready ASAP.

 

That’s all I have for the plant family Rosaceae at the moment. Never know what I will run across…
