Guided wildflower walks in Pearson’s Falls

Published 1:58 pm Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Hepatica, toad-shade trillium, violets, bloodroot and more are blooming in Pearson’s Falls. Learn to recognize these plants and non-flowering plants on one or all of the Tryon Garden Club’s guided wildflower identification walks on Tuesday afternoons at 1:30 p.m. beginning March 29 through April 26.

“The wildflowers in Pearson’s Falls bloom early, before the leaf cover of the trees comes out. By May, most of the flowers on the plants will be gone,” Millie Pearson told the group who joined her last spring for the wildflower identification walk. “Each week we see different flowers blooming.”

The first walk will be led by Phil Nesbitt on March 29. On April 5th the walk will be led by Mary Clare Jenks. On April 12, Jenny Lellinger will focus on the ferns in Pearson’s Falls. Millie Pearson will lead the walk on April 19 and members of the Tryon Garden Club will lead the guided walk on April 26.
