Cinnamon Fern, Osmunda cinnamonea, a beautiful species of fern, is found in places that are usually continuously wet or damp. It is seen here surrounded by a thicket of Meadow Anemone, Anemone canadensis.


Monkey Flower, Minulus ringens, also likes wet places. It is a relatively small plant, one to three feet in height, with a very beautiful small violet flower. It blooms late in the year.


The Ohio Goldenrod, Solidago ohioensis, seen in the background, has a delicate, relatvely flat flowerhead. I have never had a problem with it getting too agressive like many other goldenrods do.


A view of the garden from another angle. The two clumps of Blue Flag Iris, Iris virginica shrevei, which blooms in the late Spring or early Summer, were planted only a year ago with this garden in 2008.
