I’m still away from the computer, sharing a daily photo with you. This is one of my favorite woodland flowers. It is pollinated by the zebra swallowtail and the fruits are treasured by animals of all sorts. We never find any because by the time they’re ripe enough to eat, the coons, possums and bears have taken them all.
The seeds of the fruit are highly insecticidal toward head-lice. Neat little tidbit of info, huh? When I get time, I plan to see if it’s also effective against aphids, which resemble lice in the way they suck the life out of tender plant leaves.
