Steve And Muffin’s Wildflowers #48.

Hi everyone! Today’s wildflower is an interesting one that we don’t see too often, the “round leaved pyrola”. There are several different species of pyrola and we have at least 4 of them in our area. This is a native wildflower which likes dry woods under stands of red or jack pine trees. This is the first time I have seen this one in several years so it was nice to get a picture of it. I had to lie down on my stomach to get the picture since the flowers hang down. The flowers can be waxy white, greenish white or cream colored. They prefer partial shade to shady areas and grow up to 20 inches (50cm) tall, though mostly around here they seem to be 6 to 10 inches (15 to 25cm) tall. The leaves are quite round and can be 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5 cm) across. They bloom from June to July and are not generally found in large groups of plants, but are usually more spread out. At least in our area that’s the way they are anyway. In Canada they can be found from Manitoba to the east coast, in the US from MN to TN and across to the east coast.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!
