Summer Wild Flowers! (Wetlands)
Hey, haven’t done one o’ these in a while. Had a nice hike over the wetlands and fields. Here are some common and rare wild flowers you can find (in mid/north eastern USA)
-------------------------
Tumblr media
Queen Anne’s Lace (or Wild Carrot) Very common in fields and on road sides. Attracts many pollinators, but those with sensitive skin can get rashes when handling the raw plant. The ‘basket’ of flowers are much more dense than its bad relatives (water and poison hemlock)  and also has the tell tale red/purple dot at the center.
Tumblr media
Monkey Flower
The mature flower is supposed to look like a monkey’s head (I don’t see it). Grows in little colonies and likes wet open fields. Is actually considered endangered in many areas.
Tumblr media
Cardinal Flower (with Black Eyed Susans and Cat Tails)
A striking wild flower with nothing coming close to its bold red color. Good for attracting butterflies, however it is rather rare in public areas due to humans picking it because of its unique look.
Tumblr media
Swamp Milkweed
There are three main milkweeds in this area but this one flowers last. Also known as Narrow Leaf, I believe. Amazing food source for pollinators in wetlands. Easy way to tell a milk weed is to rip off a tip of a leaf - if a milky white sap comes out, it’s probably a milkweed.
Tumblr media
Joe Pye Weed
A bold and very tall field and wetland plant. Loved by butterflies (that’s a Tiger Swallow Tail). Seen as a cumbersome weed in larger properties so it can become rare. Grows very tall (10 feet) and one of the few tall plants with a whorled leaf pattern.
Tumblr media
Pickerelweed
There are quite a fer large, showy water plants that will grow in shallow wetlands or along small lakes or streams. Arrow Weed looks very similar but has a small white flower, Spadder Dock has much broader leaves and a pod like yellow flower. Other water plants such as lilies have more flat flowers. Pickerelweed is the most bold with a series of tall stalks of purple flowers. Even birds will feed from it!
Tumblr media
Button Bush
Ok, I cheated. This is a water loving bush. Called the Covid Flower by my mom, the Button Bush has cute spherical flowers that pop up all over the ends of the branches. Common and beautiful.
Tumblr media
Chicory
A weed you will see on the sides of roads and in fields or waste sites in abundance. Pretty easy to ID due to it being a thick ‘stem’ with a series of light purple flowers and not really any large leaves. This weed has a secret as all of it is edible and can be used to help with various medical issues.
Tumblr media
Spice Bush (female)
Aaaand another bush! My favorite! The only common alternate leaved bush in the area, the Spice Bush can either be male or female, with the female growing flowers and eventually berries that go from green to red. Said berries can be pitted and dried and crushed to make an allspice like powder. The leaves also have the wonderful smell too! Fairly common and easy to ID due to the bright stems on the leaves.
Tumblr media
Tall Iron Weed
This field plant can grow up to 10 feet tall.  Similar to Joe Pye Weed but with a different leaf pattern. Also loved by butterflies and bees. Will grow in clumps. Also sees as an annoying weed in fields and large properties, but flourishes in parks.

Native Northeast Plants: Joe-Pye-Weed
Eutrochium purpureum, Asteraceae family
Joe-pye was named after a man that used the plant medicinally for helping people with typhus fever. In addition to its medicinal properties, both the flowers and seeds can be used as a dye for textiles.
===
NOTE: This plant might not be exclusively native to the Northeast of the United States and could be native in a wider range of locations. I live in zone 6 area in the Northeast of the US so that is the lens of my focus.

A Monumental 20-Story Wildflower Blooms Above Jersey City in a New Mural by Artist Mona Caron
A single Joe Pye weed with barbed leaves and a blossoming head looms over Jersey City in a staggering new mural by Mona Caron. Set against a black backdrop, the hardy botanical—which is actually a wildflower from the eutrochium genus that’s native to the region—is the latest from the San Francisco-based artist, who’s known for her multi-story murals of plants and weeds that soar above city skylines. Commissioned as part of the Jersey City Mural Arts Program, the exquisitely rendered flower is a celebration of resilience as it “rises with the sun, facing off the skyline across the Hudson,” Caron writes on Instagram. “A vision of nature winning, of plants being the ones towering over us for a change, putting us back in our place. May we learn. May they come back.”

I blame @cazort for the fact that I now feel I have to take pictures of every Joe Pye weed I see. Life was easier when I just looked at them and didn’t think, now which species is this?
Goldenrod people you are on notice: I will not even try to learn all of those! This includes you, @uswildflowers ! ;-)

Monarchs on Joe-Pye Weed
Have you ever wondered who Joe Pye was? According to legend, Joe Pye was a Native American herbalist who used a local plant to cure a variety of illnesses including typhoid fever. For years, it was unknown if Joe Pye was a real person or a botanical myth until research confirmed the plant’s name originated from the nickname of Joseph Shauquethqueat, a Mohican chief who lived in Massachusetts and New York in the 18th and early 19th centuries.
