More Pinelands Species Added to the Life List

Since my last post I've been able to add quite a few new species to my Wildflowers of the NJ Pinelands check list, with the help of some fellow plant enthusiasts.

My current Pinelands wildflower count is up to 125 species!

Next up on the list is to try and capture the following species that bloom from mid-May to late-June:
-Puttyroot (Aplectrum hyemale)
-Slender blue flag (Iris prismatica)
-Yellow star-grass (Hypoxis hirsuta)
-Fly-poison (Amianthium muscautoxicum)
-American chaffseed (Schwalbea americana)
-Narrow-leaved sundrops (Oenothera fruticosa)
-White-tubed colicroot (Aletris farinosa)
-Ragged fringed orchid (Platanthera lacera)

This list is going to be much more difficult to complete than previous lists, considering it contains state-threatened and endangered species, but the goal still stands!
