  • Question
    what is daisy tree? pl give pics if possible
    Dear uakeloth, good morning. It will be hard for me to answer this question with confidence because common names are often used for more than one species of plant. However, at least one genus referred to as daisy tree is provided information here: . I hope it helps you with your question. (Wednesday, 16 January 2019)
  • Question
    A bit north of New England, but I think this is Saxifraga oppositifolia in fruit. Photographed in Newfoundland on July 4 2018.
    Thokozile, good morning. Yes, it looks like that species. Ours here in New England looks nothing like this because the internodes are spaced out much more. So, instead of a compact growth form (like you have photographed), they are elongated, sprawling, and often hanging down from cliff edges, etc. Thanks for sharing--hope you are well.

  • Question
    Greetings, I live in Northampton, and I recently found a strange purple seed pod filled with green goo near the Mill River. There were no others around that woody area, and I would like to know what it is. Thank you, Reggie
    Reggie, I'm sorry, I wish I could help. But I do not recognize what this is from the image supplied. Interesting find, I'll ask some others who might have an idea of its identity. Best wishes. (Thursday, 10 January 2019)
