Now Showing: The Wild Hyacinth

The wild hyacinth is now carpeting Wolf Road Prairie’s savanna floor with their blossoms, and when there is a breeze their perfume fills the air.  Look also for white starry Solomon seal and pink wild geraniums.  On the prairie, you will find little islands of yellow wood betony, as well as the delicate blue-eyed grass, which sometimes appears blue, but at other times is white tinged with blue, scattered throughout the prairie.  Enjoy the stronger colors of the butter-scotch colored hoary puccoon, and the golden Alexanders.  And for the observant, the white flowers of the wild strawberries are blooming close to the ground.  (Photo by Barbara A.
