Description

Locally common; rich slope above RR tracks, achieving greatest abundance in light gaps. I noticed this population exhibited herbivory from some unknown insect (I suspect a species of lepidoptera, but I could find no caterpillars -- perhaps they hide in leaf duff during the day?).

I came too late. All of these were past peak bloom, and it was difficult to find plants with more than one flower. I had to get a little creative to find an interesting shot ...

Local, single population restricted to stream terrace, edge of mesic woods.
