arobbywrench Had been wondering what this towering bamboo-like plant was at the Estero San Jose. Turns out it is Arundo donax or Giant Cane from Asia and thriving here in #bajacalifornia

matt_in_trees Flowers of a male early meadow rue - Thalictrum dioicum. Exquisitely adapted for taking advantage of the slightest breeze.

ericungberg Sisyrinchium angustifolium along the trail at penny's bend. Common but a nifty looking plant, need to spend more time with this genus, I've probably overlooked the superficially similar species we have around here... #plantsofinstagram #plantstagram #plantid #botany #botanizing #pennysbend #enoriver #nature #naturenc 1d

latshaj Joshua tree (Yucca brevifolia)
I was excited to see Joshua trees in the wild roaming free. @krombopulos_will was stoked to make bunny ears. We all come to the desert for different reasons.

matt_in_trees Adder's tongue - Ophioglossum vulgatum

Such an exciting find. Easily one of my all time favorite ferns. These plants form an obligate interaction with mycorrhizal fungi. They can disappear underground for years until they have enough energy to throw up a leaf and the occasional sporophyte stalk.

latshaj Phacelia minor is beginning to senesce as the summer heat becomes more intense. This was the most spectacular blue I seen in the desert. #desertflora #botanizing #botany #getoutside #explore #phacelia #boraginaceae #getoutside #nature #joshuatree #joshuatreenationalpark #mojave #superbloom #california #blue 4d

ericungberg Hiked thirteen miles yesterday and didn't see too much interesting stuff, and was kind of bumming. Then at the last spot of the day I was thinking I wish I could see some Cypripedium, I know it's around, and lo and behold, I was almost right on top of some basal leaves. Eventually I found one in flower. Pink lady slipper orchid (Cypripedium acaule), #hangingrockstatepark

ericungberg New one for me today, Kalmia buxifolia (sand myrtle), heath family (Ericaceae). Has a kind of odd distribution on the east coast, occurring in the NJ pine barrens, the coastal plain of SC and NC, and in this case along the southeastern edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Found this particular specimen on the path to Lower Cascade Falls at Hanging Rock State Park. ---

latshaj Happy Earth Day! Deserts are great to explore and enjoy but many of the plants and animals that live there are threatened with climate change. More deserts each year experience less rainfall making it harder for native plants to survive prolonged drought. We share this world with so many fantastical species, let's do our best to keep them from disappearing. #joshuatreenationalpark #joshuatree #desertflora #nativeplants #earthday #cactus #cactaceae #agavaceae #botany #botanizing #getoutside #explore #nature #conservation #protection 6d

latshaj The cholla garden full of teddy bear cholla cactus. The light illuminates the new spines giving a nice contrast to the older orange tinged spines. #teddybearcholla #cholla #chollagarden #cylindropuntia #cactaceae #cactus #desertflora #botanizing #botany #getoutside #explore #nature #adventure #nativeplants #desertflora #joshuatree #joshuatreenationalpark 1w
