Cascade metropark heavier veg cover than usual for this sp. slightly less abundant here than in the past
Panzner Wetland Field B, wooded northern end. With populus, carex, sensitive fern. locally noticeable. Later on realized that some of this group of plants matched S. torreyi better than americanus, but this photo appears to be americana (leaf shorter than infl. ht, two stigma lobes, shape of achene (though still very young). I need to revisit this. ~30cm tall, loose colonies (not clumped), triangular stem, short (~8cm) leaves, 2 (and in some cases 3) stigma lobes
Complete guess on this id ('insect larvae salix' in image search, best match). Very common on Salix amygdaloides
Panzner Wetland Field B, northern wooded part. With populus, carex, sensitive fern.
Panzner Wetland Field B, northern part. Locally dominant, in wooded wetland with carex, typha, sensitive fern. Most trees are juvenile, about 8cm dbh, 10m tall. I was surprised to find this species here, since it was not on the original delineation survey but is quite common.
Panzner Wetland Field B, northern area. Wooded wetland with Populus, Salix, sensitive fern. ~30cm high, clump of ~25 stems. Common. two stigmas each.
Approximately 18 to 24 inches long - very dark.

abundant in patches
Panzner wetland field c
With typha and wool grass
Scattered, in early flower
Panzner in several sites
Just starting to emerge for the year, 10-20cm tall. Panzners pointed out to me the broad, blunt and slightly boat-like leaf tips (not as distinct as poa). I will need to see reproductive characters to be more confident of this. I expected to see more evidence of a tussock for them

20-40 cm tall. Pretty early in flowering at this point. No robbing holes visible.
Panzner wetland field b
Just emerging for the year - about 10cm tall. Panzners pointed it out to me.
