Another hiatus from The Pocket of almost 2 weeks. Repeating from the last report – “Even more species are blooming now than two weeks ago.” This time I counted 40 species blooming, including one I don’t recall ever seeing down there before – Crossvine (Bignonia capreolata.) But the show is the massive display of Bent White Trillium (Trillium flexipes) – nearly every plant I saw had an open blossom, and the hillside was covered with them in many places.
Cross Vine, a native species, has been added to the USWildflowers database (06/05/2013.) Scientific name is Bignonia capreolata. It is also known by the common names Trumpet Flower, and Crossvine. Photo below was taken in Walker County, GA on May 7, 2013. Go to the Cross Vine detail page for more photos and information.
