Joy in the Woodland Yard

Want to know what delights me? Discovering a native wildflower in the yard that I hadn't seen here before. Prenanthes serpentaria Gall-of-the-Earth, apparently used for Rattlesnake bite. Let's hope I never need it. It is growing within 30' of where I think Copperheads are denning; wonder if it works for their bite too. It's an alexiteric. Only 4 plants, so I won't be harvesting any, but hoping to support it spreading...

Here are various websites I used to verify the species of the Genus, which was also called Nalabus.
